simple statement in itself is enough to make veteran convention-goers plan to be present at our conclave at Edgewater Beach Hotel in Chicago, August 4th to 8th. However, this A. S. A. Convention in the 1941 way is outstandingly convention in the American way.

Ramsey, but continued her studies, acquiring her B .S. in Education in Northeast Missouri State Teachers College in 1921 and her Master's degree from De Paul University in 1930. he is now a teacher of Mathematics in Kelvyn Park High School in Chicago.


V irginia will be gone next year but all the Psi Psi girls will long remember her playing our beloved "Alpha Sigma Sweetheart Song" to our rushees!

Chairman Skit for Region II Ramona Barnes of Dunkirk, N. Y.

Chairman of Skit for Region IV Virginia Downs

Virginia entered school at Louisiana State No rmal m the year 1937. She had the distinction of being the youngest freshman in the school , but that didn't stop her from doing things. She entered into the music curriculum , and how well she has done! Hardly a tea or reception i ever given that our own Virginia is not seen sitting at th e piano. But thi s isn't all. At our own meetings she always plays. How our "Closing Song" always makes me think of her. She has written the lyrics and m.elody to many songs, and we plan to present some of them at th e Convention in August. She has been a member of the A Cappella Choir since its organization, and they will be so rry to lose her this year, too. V irginia has served as Editor in th e sorority for two years. This was her pride and joy; and she hates to leave it with graduation. At present she is making plans for her senior recital. This i the climax of her mu sical career in college, and we are all anxiou ly waiting for it.

Mona Barnes is one of the best anyone could pick for a soro rity sister and an A lpha Sig. T here are about sixty-' leven reasons why this i so, but mostly 'cause she's such a loyal, friendly and worthwhile girl. In Pi Pi Chapter we're always saying about prospective rushees, "Well, yes, she's nice, but so are five hundred other girl"' on campus." Mona isn't just a "nice" girl. She's peppy, imaginative, has clever ideas; she's full of her fun and has a "crack" for every occasion. She also has a big hou se she lets us take over for Slumber Party and a darling mother. Mona's friendly and sympathetic; she makes you see the funny side of the situation and then usually offers a practical solution. She's logical and, even downright profound when occasion demands ! A job given to Mona is a job well clone, but one isn't even conscious of Mona's doing itwhy Mona doe n't look like a super-efficient person or a little boy's picture of a school teacher but, boy, when that straight-A practice teacher starts next eptember the kids are going to love her! Her screw-ball glamour girl act has us rolling in th e ai les. She and Carole Lombard ! I guess with all her "practicality" and her " imaginability" she ought to turn out a pretty good skit for us at Convention. Pi Pi is counting on her and she won't let us down.



Chairman for Dinner-Region IV Rivers Rhodes

While Rivers Rhodes of Psi Psi is only a freshman and will be a sophomore when we attend Convention in August, she has made such an outstanding Alpha Sigma Alpha girl that she

Auto Found?

is our choice as the person to have charge of our decoratioi1s for the Regional Dinner. Rivers is a grad uate of l atchitoches High School, where she earned a " traight A" average for her four years . vVhile she isn't repeating that quite in college, she made better than a B average last semester. But don't think that Rivers is a bookworm! Far from it! She managed to gain the title of most popular as well as most intelligent girl in high school. She was Cheer Leader, Class President and Editor of both her high school paper and annual. But Rivers wasn't just the favored child of high school. Here in college she's carrying on. In her first season she has "made the Varsity Debate Squad" and has gone on several trips (and those of you who have met the L. S. N . C. Debaters know that making that squad is no little feat .) She's carrying on in journalism in the college. And best of all, she's giving the sorority the use of her talents in a way not often possible for freshmen. We will be willing to risk the reputation of Psi Psi and of this region to her capable hands.

Chicago Bound!!

TRIP PLANNING "A Trip Well Planned is a Trip Enjoyed" TIME: P lanning a time schedule depends largely upon the driving habits of the individual and the section of the country through which one is driving. The driving time given here is figured with normal traffic conditions and dry roads. Much better time can be made in the w'e st and in the south than can be made in the more densely populated northeastern states. Time for eating and stopovers must be reckoned in addition to the time required for driving. COST: Here, again, there will be a variation depending upon personal habits and the size of the car. The medium size car will average about r0 c per mile for gasoline and oil, larger cars a little more, lighter cars a little less.

Auto Found?

Hotel accommodations will average $2.00 to $3.00 per person per night. The better class motor courts will average $1.00 to $2.00 per day with two in a room. The better tourist homes, about $1.00 per day with two in a room. Motor courts are more plentiful in the south and west, tourist homes are more plentiful in the eastern states. The cost of food will average about the same as accommodations . Tips will be about 10 per cent of room and food cost. And of course, there will be some bridge and ferry tolls: Storage for car at the Edgewater Beach Hotel is about $1.00. Convention rates-$7 .50 per clay.

Edgewater Beach Hotel

Edgewater Beach Hotel where the 1941 T HE :-\lpha Sigma lpha Co nvention will be held is one of the show places of Chicago and certain ly one of the world's most famous hotels. Located right on the shore of Lake M ichigan, in a fine residential section and a way from the noise and bustle of Chicago's great business section, it is the ideal convention hotel. Every one of its one thousand rooms is an outside room and the building is surrounded by the hotel's own landscaped ground s, which provide facilities for many types of year 'round rec reation and spo rt activities. During the period of our meeting, members may u e and enjoy the 1200-foot bathing beach, tennis cou rt , lighted for night play, a mashi e and putter golf cour. e, all on the hotel's grounds . In adjacent Lincoln Park w ill be found horseback riding. boating, shooting a nd a regul ation 18-hole golf course. For the evening hours, there will be dancing and entertainment out of doo rs on the Beach vValk. where Horace Heidt and hi. famous "Pot of Gold" orchestra will be holding forth. dining on the open air porch and peed boat riding on Lake M ichigan. Those who come to the convention may drive their ca rs directly into the hotel, th ere being a garage vvith space for 200 cars within the building. T he Edgewater Beach is also the home of the famous Marine Dining Room, which everyone seem to have heard about and most of u s have seen. This room has recently been entirely

rebuilt and deco rated and besides being the largest hotel dining room in Chi cago, it is also the most beautiful. With its many different fl oo r levels and the large cushioned dance floor, topranking bands and smart entertainment, it is th e night-tim e favorite of th o~1 sa ncl s of pleasure seeking folk s, not only native Chi cagoa ns, but visitors from all over the world. A nother well k110wn and popular spot in the hotel is th e Yacht Club. The Yacht Club is entet路ecl from a typical ship 's gang plank leading downward. \iVhen one gets inside, the illusion of standing on the deck of a sea-going yacht in motion is perfect. 'vVaves clash against the sides and all the sound s of a large boat under way are fa ithfully reproduced. A ll of the appointments and facilities of the hotel are perf ect for a meeting such as ours. The East Lounge has been reserved for our meetings at all times during Conventi on. It is large. with plenty of li ght. good ventilation and pleasant surroundings. )most every type of guest room accommodations will be avail abl e to our members with the cooling breezes of Lake M ichigan looking out fo r eve ryone's comfort. T he price, American plan, is $7.50 per clay. Sixty-five sororities and fraternities have held th eir conventions in thi s and past years 111 the Edgewater Beach Hotel. How many of you will be there to join 111 the fun of the "All- America n A lpha Sigs ''? I-IELEN L. CoREY, Conven t拢on Jl!Ia nager.



Saving Pennies for Convention? ! Punk! Punk! Punk! (a nickle, not a PUNI phoney penny). That is the music made by the pennies and nickles as they hit their brothers, sisters, and cousins held prisoners within the walls of my glass bank. Around the bank in bold, black letters is the sign "Convention or-!" Beside the bank on my desk is the Daily Reminder Memo Pad which serves as a constant reminder that the Alpha Sig Convention is being held in Chicago THIS SUMMER from August 4th to the 8th. Yes, that is all it says-and all it needs to say; for the rest is either written between the lines or is held captive in my imagination. The Edgewater Beach Hotel is still just a castle-in-the-air for I picture it as surrounded by puffy clouds and a hazy mist. However, each penny in my bank helps to push back those clouds; and each nickle sends a ray of golden sunlight through the mist. I can see it more clearly now. Look! There is the bathing beach -the tennis courts ; and over there is the golf course. Watch the sail boats bobbing along through the v,rhitecaps of Lake Michigan. Isn't that the A. S. A. banner flying in the breezes? Shh-hh-you can hear Horace Heidt's Orchestra playing "Alpha Sigma Sweetheart." This is a ll that $12.37 worth of nickles and pennies can produce but, in time, that picture is going to be crystal-clear. Why am I so anxious to go to Convention this summer? As an active member of A . S. A. and as a Junior at Drexel Tech, I have been dreaming of this get-together for quite some time. It all happen ed 'way back in 1939 when I joined the sorority and learned of her aims and ideals through the examples set for me by my newly acquired sisters. These girls gave me something to strive for and the desire to make them proud of the contributions that I could make in four short years. Then, they told us of the last convention at Yosemite N a tiona! Park! The four N u N u girls who attended took numerous photographs and are still telling us of the grand time and how wonderful are the girls from the other chapters. To top this already burning desire to travel to Convention, I was fortunate in attending the Regional Conference held in Washington, D. C., Ia t spring. Here we spent three glorious days meeting our sisters ( both actives and alum nee) from New England to South Carolina w~ich includes all the chapters all along the A tlantic Coast. Not only did we acquire many

new and fascinating friends, but also we returned with numerous novel ideas for our rushing seasons, our dances and parties, our "money-raising" schemes, and odd knacks in dues collecting. We understood more clearly the activities and un dertakings of the other chapters and we made suggestions toward the solution of those problems with which we had been confronted. My individual feeling toward these experiences was the realization that A lpha Sigma Alpha is so much bigger than I had ever dreamed . It extends way beyond Philadelphia! And just think - I am a part of this nation-wide organization of thousands of women all working toward "my goal." It's breath-taking! The spirit of the alumnce also impressed me with the desire to always remain in contact with the so rority and its activities and to strengthen the present bonds. All these things mentioned have added to my longing to travel West and to see Chicago; so that I CANNOT ignore this wonderful opportunity to materialize a few "castles-in-the-air"' that I have harbored too long. So from now till August I shall continue to drop pennies and nickels in my Bank. The N u N u's will be there for every second of the Convention. Will we see you there? MARION

Convention Delegates ALPHA


A lpha Chapter unanimou sly elected Pauline (Polly) Keller. our newly re-elected president. to represent the chapter at our national convention in Chicago this summer.

Helen Mayor, f rom l\Iacon, Missouri , has been chosen delegate to the national convention at Edgewater Beach Hotel, Chicago . She is the newly elected president of A lpha Beta Chapter,


T hink back to a time when you read a character sketch of some one and thought and wondered how anyone could be like that and yet be human a nd real. Vlell, "Poll y" answers to all the attributes summed up in the best of character sketches. She's loyal, capable, attractive, and in hort our idea of a model Alpha Sig. "Polly" has been a member of the House Council for two yea rs. She was recently elected to serve on the Y . \ V. C. . Cabinet next year a 路 chairman of th e Church Cooperative Committee. Polly also belongs to the Association of Childhood Ed ucation, the Dramatics Club, Cotillion Cl ub , the Granddaughter's Club, and play in the school orchestra. It's easy to say with no reserves that "Poll y" is quite versatile. lpha Chapter this yea r, ..-\s president of "Poll y" inaugu rated a budget system which has proved very va luable and effective. Anyone who can thi nk up an efficient and workable way of cond ucting finances is indeed worthy of praise. I n Chicago when you meet "Polly," who will be D inner Cha irman fo r Region I , your fir st impre sion will be of an unu suall y sunny-dispositionecl, tall. very blond, girl, beautifuiJy dressed and always having a good time. Try to know her better, because beneath her attractive and nice exterior lies an even finer inner "PoiJ y."


Chairman of Stunt Committee for Region III.

having served as vice-p resident for the preceding year. Helen pledged A lpha Sigma A lpha in the fall of 1938, and joined the following spring. She is active in campus acttvtttes . She is a member of the Student Council, Panhellenic Council, and was one of the at!endants to the Echo Q ueen. Vve are glad to have Helen Mayor represent Alpha Beta at the National Co nvention .

ALPHA GAMMA Rhoda l\I. H unter, the chapter's new president and a resident of P ittsburgh , Pa., has been chosen to represent Alpha Gamma at the A llA merican Convention in Chicago . She has h e 1 d the office of chapter Registrar thi year, and under her leadership the recent RnooA M. Hu NTER formal rush party was quite a success. A Sophomore in the E lementary Ed ucation Department of the college Rhoda has been as

GAMMA GAMMA May we present V irginia Ro e Provost, Gamma Gamma's officia l delegate to the Convention . This tall brunette has a magnetic per-

\s our representative to the National Convention at Edgewater Beach Hotel in Chicago, Beta Beta ha cho en Detty Jane Barnes. Betty Jane is from lamosa. Colorado, and is se rving . us this year as president of Beta Beta. She is a junior and is a n attractive blonde who is very efficient. Many honors have been awarded Betty J ane during her three yea rs on this campus. Last year Betty J ane acted as president of her dormitory. Th is year she was president of Bi-Tri, a council of the six women's dormitories. Boosters' Club, the pep organization. finds her an enthu siastic member.



J Al'\E


Betty's primary in teres is music. She is a member of Delta O micron , national honorary mus ic fratern ity fo r women. S he is solo cornetist of the concert band and also plays in the marching band. T he Student Council has selected her to serve on various committees during her school years. T his year she has received one of the hi ghest honors that can come to a girl on this campus. he has been chosen by the junior class and the

sonality, and we vvant you to get acquainted, for we assure you that she is likable. Her major interest is dramatics, as evidenced by the years of study of reading she has to her credit. s well as being in all the high school plays, she also directed one production. Not only did she win the Lambert High School dramatic meda l two years, but also placed second in the Tonkawa contest. She was rated first in oratory at Tonkawa and second at Shawnee. V irg inia was secretary of the 4-H Cl ub while she was still in High School. For two路 yea rs she was Alfalfa County 4- H delegate at the Roundup in Still water. Then in the fa ll of 1940 she was awarded a trip to the American Royal Livestock Show at Kansas City. V irginia was a very outstanding student in high school in that, in add ition to being an A student she belonged to the band, orche tra. and glee club, was editor of her school paper and was president of Epvvorth League and pep club. F rom all this you can easiliy see why she al o won a $200 scholarship to P hillips U niversity fo r being an all a roun d girl. She hasn't slowed her pace since she came to


col lege, either. She is a member of Zippers (pep club ), Little Theater (dramatic club ) and was in the fall drama "The Fool." This fall she was pledged by Gamma Gamma Chapter and this spring was added to the active membership. She was elected to the office of Chaplain for the ensuing year. \ Vhen you meet our Southwesterner, smile and say "hello" and you will be warmly greeted.

EPSILON EPSILON Epsilon Epsi l on has chosen Bettyanne Atherton as the lucky girl who will go to Alpha Sigma Alpha National Convention. Bettyanne was, until our last election, vicepresident and is now our new chaplain. Bettyanne has been a v e r y outstanding member of our chapBETTYAN N E ATHERTON ter. She worked very hard on the recent magazine sale and for her effort Epsilon Epsi lon received first place in the magazine contest. She has represented us very vvell at the Alumnce Chapter and has worked on many committees for various function s.

In her sophomore year she se rved not only as president of her class, but al so as a student representative on the \tV omen' s Student Government Association .

Lucille was recently elected treasurer of our chapter and clue in some part, at least, to her efforts, we now have the largest balance we have had within the span of our memory . Rho Rho has not had Lucille long, as she is only a sophomore. However, she ha served in va ri ous ca- 路 pacities and on many committees; and she has proved her everlasting zeal and enthusiasm in one and all positions. Lucille plans to drive to Chicago to the convention, and some of her Rho Rho siste rs will be riding with her. O ne of the girls suggests that we buy a trailer and all come along, which isn't such a bad idea after all.

With a great big mile and a resounding " hell o" that sound just like her, we introduce Pi P i's new president, Carol F razee, who also will represent our chapter at the Jational Convention.

Lucile is a junior and is a Home Economics major. For the past year she has been secretary for Tau Tau. She has loads of pep and energy. I don"t see how she does it but she works, goes to school, and then finds time somehow to learn to fly a plane. Right now that is her greatest point of int~rest.

All who meet Lucile at convention will like her as she has a nice personality and is fnn.

Already our sorority meetings are buzzing with the anticipation of National Convention. Having heard the enthusiastic reports from older actives who attended Cleveland Regional, even the new initiates are excited in planning for it. Consequently, it was a most important night on which we decided as to who our official delegate would be. We are sure of this. She is a typical Alpha Sig- Angeline Yovich of Gary, Indiana- a charming, alert, and active co-ed. Her professional interests are Home Economics and Physi-

After a year as vice-president of the Freshman Y. 'vV . C. A . Cabinet she became one of the Freshman Commissioners, an honorary organization for sophomores which is sponsored by the Religious O rganizations. Then last spring ( 1940) she was elected to the P urple J ackets, the honorary organization of fifteen junior and seni or women. Thi s is about the highest distinction a Normal girl can attaii1 .

Sidney is a tall , lovely brunette from Shreveport, and she has a fin ger in just about every pie that's stirred up around Normal. Her personality and her very real leadership have been an inspiration all thi s year, and with her energy and the experience she has behind her we are looking forward to an even more successful year for Psi Psi. Just for a picture of all that an A lpha Sig can do, here are some of Sidney's honors and activities. In her freshman year she served fir st

two Alpha Sigs selected as maids for the President's Ball last J anuary. Sidney is now a Junior and she has approximately a "B" average.

Our delegate to the first national convention in which we will take part is our newly elected president, Geneva Richard. Since coming to Southwe tern she has been active in many student activities. During her freshman year she was elected president of her dormitory, was tapped by the faculty for high scholastic achievement, and became a member of the vVomen's Athletic Association, of which she has become a board member. In her sophomore year she upheld her scholastic record and at the same time was elected a member of the Red Jackets, president of Lambda Omega, an honor organization of sophomo¡re girls, treasurer of Harris Hall, treasurer of the Physical Education Club, and a member of Panhellenic Council.


This year she added to her list of student activities secretary of the Students' Relations Committee and registrar of the sorority. She became a member of the Vermilion Honor Society, an honor organization of junior and senior girls. We are indeed happy to send to you our delegate, Geneva Frances Richard.

DOROTHY CURRIER The Boston Alumnce Chapter are glad of this opportunity to introduce our delegate to National Convention, Dorothy Currier, who hails from Hallowell, Maine. Dot attended Farmington Normal School in Maine, where her voice


wa heard in the Glee Club. Then through the m pmng t a 1 k given at Farmington by our beloved Mabel Parkes Friswell, the Personnel Director at Boston University, Dot picked up her belongings and wended her way to Boston to register at Boston University, School of Education. DoROTHY C u RRIER Whiie at the School of Ed, Dot became a member of Theta Theta Chapter of A. S. A. She also lent her voice to the Glee Club and made our Senior Week program a big success by putting her shoulder to the wheel of the Senior Week Committee. Dot received a surprise that week, when she was called to the platform during her last assembly to receive the School of Education Key fo1' S ervice. The Alpha Sigmas were proud of her that day. Since leaving B. U. in June, 1932 with her B.S. in Ed., Dot has been teaching the fourth grade in Melrose, Massachusetts. In connection with teaching. Dot has been elected to the Executive Board of the Melrose Teachers' Club. The Daughters of the American Revolution and the Order of Eastern Star have benefitted through Dot's membership in these organizations. At present Dot is extremely busy, as she is working for her l\Iaster of Ed. at B. U . in the late afternoon and evening. Where Dot finds time to work on her hobbies, which are coin and stamp collecting, nobody knows; but she assures us that she does, and that they help her to relax from her duties. The Alum nee are letting her rest now, as she holds no office; but she did an excellent job as Secretary. Dot's summers are spent with her mother at the Currier homestead in Hallowell, Maine . . Her home is set on the top of one of the many hills, (and her hill is a hill, as you have to, even with the best car, make the climb in second speed ) . When you reach the top of this grade (it is only a grade to the townspeople), you have one of the grandest views you could ask for. You can look off for miles over rolling farm lands and forests in the distance in one direction, down on the Kennebec River as it winds through the state of Maine to its final destination-the sea, and in another direction lies the beautiful capitol building and grounds in Augusta. Hallowell adjoins Augusta. The Currier homestead is one of the



most restful places you could visit, as it IS a true New England home. Dot received me on my unexpected visit last summer with a cloud of hayseed and dust. Although she had heard my car grinding up the long hill, she had not had curiosity enough to leave her task of clearing out the hay lot of the barn to investigate who might be arriving. I certainly would have, as the road ends in her drive-way; but not Dot-her job came first. \i\lhat I would give to be back at this moment, snow and all (New England still has snow on the ground at this writing) relaxing in the peaceful 路environment of the perfect Maine home. There is real New England hospitality to be found there, served by Dot and her lovely mother.

apparent ease. That is why the Buffalo Alumnce Chapter has chosen Fran for their president and delegate-it would be impossible to find one more charming or capable.

LOUISE ABRAMS, Alternate Louise Abrams who has been selected as alternate delegate for Buffalo Alumnce Chapter, has been a faithful and hard-working member. She is thorough and sure in whatever the task. She loves gardens and all the flowers that grow in them; it is an active hobby of hers. If you love hats-almost any kind of hat-talk to Louise about hats and you'll be buddies sure enough. You won't have to guess about Louise ; You'll know when she likes or approves and you'll know if she doesn't which is solid ground for true friendship.

SUE CAMPBELL Canton proudly sends to Chicago, Mrs. Pressley Campbell, Jr., Omicron Omicron, Kent State University, '30. Sue has a beautiful, wellmanaged home, and three charming children to whom she is a most devoted mother. She is active in the Canton Woman's Club and Town Garden Club, among a great many others. (She plays a master hand of bridge, by the way.) She has taken a prominent part in trying to bring better dramatic and musical talent to our city, and has served at the Community Shop. She was one of the organizers of the Canton Alumnce Chapter. She has a friendly, charming personality, and with her background of activities in club work, we are sure that Sue will do us proud at Chicago, and that we, in turn will benefit much by her participation in the convention.


Teachers College. She held offices in the college chapter, and received many other social and cholastic honors. She taught for two years most successfully until she " retired" last year to be married. "Retired" is hardly the word, for she is now most active in many social organizations, but she still finds time to be a perfect housekeeper and an omniverous reader. Her musical talent is a source of great delight to her many friends. There are any number of crafts that Fran is competent at, and she is always ready to try something new. Whatever F ran has to do, she always does with the greatest charm and

Mrs. Ralph M . Vorhees will be the official delegate of the Cleveland Alumnce Chapter to the national A. S. A. convention in Chicago. She is a graduate of Teacher's College at Kirksville, Missouri.

Vorhees, who was on the faculty of the School of Osteopathy. They were married in 1926. They came to Cleveland after the birth of Janice in 1928. Dr. Vorhees became head of the eye, ear, nose, and throat department of the




Cleveland Osteopathic Hospital and Clinic. In that capacity he has gained outstanding recognition. A son, John, was born in 1930. Ruth was one of the members of the first Cleveland Alumnce Chapter. It was largely through her efforts that the present chapter came into being in February, 1940. She is now serving as secretary. She is a member of P.E.O . and has served as its chaplain. She is secretary of the Osteopathic \i\Tomen's Club of Cleveland. She serves on the Girl Scouts Heights District Committee. She has her membership in Faim1ount Presbyterian church and has been a Sunday School teacher there for several years. In sending Ruth to convention, our chapter feels it is contributing much toward the success of the conclave. We are sure of a vitaJ, intelligent report of the doings at our first fall meeting. Make it a point to know our delegate. She is a fine example of the best in Alpha Sigma Alpha.

complishments is a good game of golf but she finds time to enjoy another weakness-sailing. She is an active member of our chapter 路a nd will be vice-president of our group for the coming year. We know she will represent our chapter graciously and enthusiastically and will return with many new ideas and helpful suggestions for our chapter activities. With her go our sincere wishes for a successful convention and a wonderful time.

SARAH JANE BUMGARDNER We, of Delta Phi Chapter of Detroit are most fortunate in having Sarah Jane Bumgardner, one of our most channing and loyal girls represent our group at the National Convention.

"Jo" was president of the active chapter at Marshall College last year. During that time she proved to be a good leader. She has ability to lead group


activities, such as singing, games, and stunts. She is rather new at alumme work, however, she has drifted into our ways of doing things and has made a definite place for herself in our organization. \iVith all her vivacity and ability to absorb new ideas we are sure "J o" will make a good representative for our group -the next best thing to going ourselves.

Dorothy was our .delegate to the Regional Meeting in Cleveland last fall.

ESTHER ARNOTT The :iVIuncie, Indian a, Alumnce Chapter is seRding Esther Arnott as our delegate to convention. As you can see by her picture she has a smile for all. She is frantic because spring seems to be moving along so slowly. You guessed it! She's dying to start for convention, and she's "chucked" full of good, fascinating ideas . . Esther was born and reared in a little town called Rensselaer, Indiana. After having graduated from a two-year kindergarten-primary course from the Teachers College of Indianapolis, she started her teaching career. January, 1931 saw her as a pledge of Alpha Sigma Alpha. To ~uote Esther, she says: "The friendships I've made through Alpha Sigma Alpha, I know will more than last me a lifetime. I could hope for no .better associations." Our delegate is now teaching in Anderson, Indiana. She is working on her degree and will get it this summer from Ball State Teachers College. She will finish just in time to get to Chicago for the big event. 'vV e have had a grand and prosperous year under Esther's leadership as president.

MAY, 1941

Campus Celebrities NAIDA JUNE BRANNUM Apple Queen at Emporia Three weeks ago our college celebrated "Apple Day" in commemoration of the founders of this institution. A chapel was held in the morning and a prom that night. It was a great honor to us when we discovered that one of our girls, aida June Brannum, had been chosen Apple Queen to reign over the festivities of the evening. Naida is more comnwnly known as ''Pinky." As you would judge by the nickname she has red hair (very beautiful too) and gorgeous blue eyes.



She is a Pittsburg girl, a fre shman and is one of the most popular co-eds on the campus. On February 14 she was crowned maid of honor to the Kanza Queen in our college yearbook This past summer "Pinky" was contest. crowned DeMolay Queen at the Four-State DeMolay Conclave at Joplin, and though adorning a crown is nothing new to her, each new honor is a bigger thrill to her. Naida is a commerce major and was initiated into Eta Eta Chapter the first of this semester. She works as an usherette at one of the downtown theaters and during her spare time between studies and working she likes to dance, play tennis, ride horses.

GWENDOLYN TRUEHEART May Queen at Madison As Queen of May Day at Madison College, Beta Epsilon presents Gwendolyn Trueheart, who wa elected from the student body at large to fulfill this honor.

The annual crowning of the queen and all of the festivities will take place on May 10, 1941. Gwen's court consists of a maid of honor, twelve maids, and twenty-four attendants. Presenting to you, with Gwen we have Kay Coupar, Skippy Warden, Katherine Ketron, Naomi McAllen, Gertie Ames and Faye Mitchell as members of royalty. This year the festivity will be a replica of the days of Dolly and James Madison for whom the college was named. The campus will be transposed into a colonial period with appropriate costumes, dances, and music. After the ceremonies dancing will follow in both gyms, Gwen with her court leading the regal procession.

MARY JORDAN McClelland Barclay Magazine Girl The Zeta Zeta Chapter is proud of their Mary Jordan. We feel that all A. S. A. girls would like to know about the honors she has won since last fall. Mary Jordan hails from H igginsville, Mo ., and attended C. M. S. T. C., where she became a member of Alpha Sigma Alpha. She was graduated in 1939 after winning MARY JoRDAN many friends.and admirers. From vVarrensburg she went to Harrisonville to teach Commerce. Last fall, Mary won


the honor of being "Miss Harrisonville" and was sent to Kansas City, Mo., to represent that town at the American Royal. There she was judged by Linda Darnell and was chosen princess at the American Royal. This honor gave Mary a lot of recognition in Kansas City. McClelland Barclay met her and immediately asked her to accept a position as a model for his magazine covers. Early this spring the Kansas City Beaux Arts Ball was held. At this big ball the bachelors' committee viewed and voted on the field of competitors for top beauty honors. Our own Mary won the honor of being selected as the McClelland Barclay Magazine cover girl. Zeta Zeta is proud of Mary !

PSI PSI PRESENTS OUTSTANDING SENIORS Beside Virginia Downs, a Psi Psi senior, whose accomplishments are noted under the heading "Chairman of Stunt for Region 4," Psi Psi wishes to introduce-

Cun'ent Sauce staff and she was also a sponsor of the Lambda Zeta dance, always an important affair. As a sophomore she took an active part in the Euthenics Club, the Home Ec majors' organization. In her junior year she was secretary of Alpha Sigma A lpha, which she did very well, by the way, and she was made a Purple Jacket. She was also bid to Kappa Delta Pi, the honorary education fraternity. This past year she was treasurer of A. S. A . and president of Kappa Delta Pi. She was elected vice-president of the Purple Jackets and in the spring semester was made their president. In November she was Psi Psi's delegate to the Regional Convention in New Orleans and she is hoping to go to the I ational Convention this summer. Mary A llen's highest distinction, however, is being listed in "Who's Who In American Colleges and Universities."

Iva Blanche Butler-Dramatics A Psi Psi girl I'm sure you would enJoy knowing is Iva Blanche Butler, one of our

Mary Allen Caraway Let me introduce you to Miss Mary Allen Caraway of Logansport, La. Mary Allen is another of our seniors who has been very important to Psi Psi . She is a niece of our faculty adviser, Miss Clio A llen. In her four years here she has been all that is the best in a typical Alpha Sig and everyone on the campus knows her as "that cute little girl in the Home Ec Department." Mary Allen has had her hands full in college, what with taking leading parts in so rority and extracurricular activities. Here are some of them. In her freshman year she was on th e



graduating class. She's a striking brunette from Oil City who has been a leader in the sorority since her freshman year. As a junior she served as registrar and in the past year she has been our very capable vice-president. Iva Blanche is an English major, but her first love, scholastically speaking, is dramatics. She has been in more plays than most of us have even seen. Her pet roles were in Spring Dance, Death Talzes a Holiday, and Iron Lace, an original Louisiana play. She has also been make-up artist for several productions as well as director of a few, so you ee her education in stagecraft is well rounded.

33 Iva Blanche had the honor of being president of the Normal chapter of Alpha Psi Omega, national honorary dramatic fraternity, at whose regional convention here this spring she was the presiding officer. She has also been secretarytreasurer of the Davis Players since 1939, a local group of dramatics devotees on the campus who must have played stellar roles in several minor plays before being eligible for membership. She is also a member of the O rder of Demosthenes and was recently bid _to Phi Kappa, or Fine Arts Club. .-\nother interesting activity is her radio work. Her excellent voice has pushed her to the foreground there. Aside from dramatics and speech activities, Iva Blanche sang in the A Cappella Choir in 1939-40, and in that same year was a member of the Wesley Foundation Cabinet. Latest in Iva Blanche's startling career is her

Alumnae Support for National Growth HE first year's work on the Alumnc:e Loyalty T Committee has meant much concentrated effort on the part of the College Chapter Chairmen on address files. With this basic work done, these girls can use their initiative on letters to their chapter sisters. During a Convention year, the Alumnc:e Chapter Chairmen, the treasurers, are busy people qualifying their chapters for hotel expenses at Edgewater Beach. We are calling upon the college vice-presidents to cooperate with the Committee in presenting the alumnc:e letters to the girls who are leaving college this year and again in the fall we are asking them to help the chapter presidents in compiling the list of members who graduate or do not return to school in the fall of 1941. Members of this Committee have aided Helen Bradley, Alumnc:e Organizer, in the establishment of our new alumnc:e chapters this year. They have also helped the Magazine Subscription Service get off to a successful start. Further plans for the work of the Alumnc:e Loyalty Committee will be planned at National Convention. 'vVe are pleased to publish news from some of the Committee.

News from the Chairmen Themselves Ada St. Clair, Alpha Gamma Chapter Chairman writes: "Either Alpha Gamma's are not on the move or they just don't contact me but as soon as it's humanly possible, I am going out and haunt them for their alumnce dues. "After much difficulty I have finally become an active member of the Pittsburgh Alumnce Chapter and am very happy about that for it seemed strange not to be closely connected with A. S. A. in some way. I am now receivin~ my notices of meetings and they do have a grand group and are doing many nice things. I find that there is an Alpha Sig located just two miles from Blawnox so I am no longer in a strange country. "The local chapter, Alpha Gamma, has just closed their rush season and came out on top as Alpha Sigs should. The girls really were elated this last week-end. The Pittsburgh Alumnce group is entertaining the actives, sponsors and pledges at a luncheon on April 19th and that always is a big day in the lives of the girls. "Saturday was a big day in the life of Lillian Porter for her wedding date was announced at a lovely luncheon. She is to be married on June 14th. Her address will change, I know, for Jim is located at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland. He is Adjutant to the Commander of the Ordnance Unit Training Center at Aberdeen. Helen Mellott and Jean Bryson are also planning spring weddings. So you can see I will have something to report soon."

Alumnae Loyalty to A.S.A.-A.S.A. Loyalty to Alumnae! Alumnce Loyalty to A. S. A . or A . 5 . A. loyalty to Alumnce is another proof of the old adage, "we get out of a thing just what we put in." I am about to become a member of my fourth alumnce chapter (Watch out Pittsburgh!). If you have ever moved around, you know that your Alpha Sigma Alpha sisters are the best insurance for feeling at home anywhere, that you can have. It is loyalty to Alpha Sigma Alpha which makes these chapters possible. Loyalty in interest, loyalty in time and loyalty in membership dues. It has been a real thrill to receive letters from

alumnce, some of whom are not able to contribute anything to their life member hips now; neve rtheless, there is the willingness to cooperate, the interest in what A . S. A . is doing, news of individual alum nee and their famili es and a! way th e sentiment, " I still think a lot of Alpha igma Alpha and will do what I can to make it grow. " Interest first, and then support. One A . S . A. sister who wrote she had heard nothing from her sorority since graduation, completed her life membership in one stroke. Alumnce contact with the chapter vice-president, who has charge of alumnce files, has been much closer and as a result, I believe there will be two complete and fairly accurate files for each chapter. Is all this worthwhile? Think back to your pledge or if you want a genuine proof, move to a new locality and meet some of the best girls ever-your sorority sisters. ELEANOR SMITH THOM AS,

Annette Pausewang Writes Members As Follows: Dear Pi Pi Alpha Sigma A lphas, (Or any one else interested! ) : This job of keeping up with all you ambitious alumnce is quite an active one! I certainly hope that this year's seniors will keep in touch with me, especially wh en they get new jobs or new husbands. In either case, it probably means new information in my file . However, everyone will do no better than the children I teach-they never remember anythng, especially on a test. On the whole, I have enjoyed by work in trying to keep track of people. Of course, none of us has been entirely successful, but the work is interesting anyhow. I have heard from a great many of my sorority sisters through this checking up process. Keeping a complete and up-to-the-minute record is not easy, as I said, but it does have its compensations. Here are a few of them . When Bev Fisher became Mrs. Herbert Klopp last December and moved to 315 Melville Rd., Farmingdale, Long I sland ; I had a new neighbor almost (only 25 miles away!) and Peg McEntire Hickey had a new job. She is finishing out the year substituting for Bev in Gardenville. Jerry Hatten is also a member of that faculty. Edith Snedecor Beatty, who was married at Thanksgiving, is finishing her t~aching year at Phelps . . In June, she and Spen expect to set


up housekeeping in Hamburg, New York. Here are a few more changed names about whom I can give no more information than the new address. Mary Zerby Herdle, 329 Goundry St., North Tonawanda, New York. Marg Sanborn Braun, 1014 Kenmore Ave., Kenmore, ew York. Norma Reeves Tatomer, 617 Chestnut St., Niagara Falls, Tew York. Jeanne Russ Eggleston, 309 Park Ave., Medina, New York. Marg Zoller Pillkey, Barker, New York. Gladys Porter Onaday. Marjorie Ferris LaClair, 6 Mill St., Angola, Tew York. Anna Lou Marks Anderson, 207 Lafayette Ave., Buffalo, New York. Vve're looking forward to a bigger and better year ahead. Incidentally, next year I'll be teaching at East Islip, L. I., and my address after July 1st will be 140 Lakeland Ave., Sayville, L. I. I hope that both Mrs. Schlosser and I will be hearing from a lot of you in the future . ANNETTE PAUSEWANG,

Women's Professional Panhellenic Association


HAT is the \ Nomen's Professional Panhellenic Association? Why was it organized? What are its functions? These questions and a host of others are asked so often by members of W. P. P . A. as well as non-members that it is important for all to know the answers to these fundamental questions.


What is theW. P. P. A .?

A. W. P. P. A. is an association of national professional fraternities for women established in 1925. The fourteen member fraternities which have met its requirements are listed in the Directory (all issues of Career) .


Why was W. P. P . A . organized?

A. The Constitution states that \ N. P. P. A. was organized "to promote high educational standards in _p rofessional training, to foster an interfraternity spirit of cooperation and mutual service among women in the various professions, and to develop opportunities for professional won1en."




the plan of organization?

A . Vashti Burr, our president, gives a brief but adequate outline of the plan of organization and our activities in Career (October-December issue, 1940-page 2 ) . This article was written at the special request of Dr. Alvan E. Duerr, Editor of Baird's Manual, and appears in the 1940 edition of the Manua l.

Q. How do the professional fraternities qualify for membership in W. P. P. A.? A. To be eligible for membership, the fraternity must have been established for at least five years, must have no less than five chapters in schools, colleges, or universities of recognized standards, must have a central governing body, must hold conventions regularly, and issue a publication at least annually.

Q. What is the membership of W. P . P. A . ? A . The fourteen member fraternities have a total membership of more than 50,000 women including 522 active and alumnce chapters in 202 colleges, universities, or schools.

Q . Does vV. P . P. A. have regional meetings for its members? A. U nder the supervision of the P rogram of Work Committee, Vl. P . P . A. regional committees have been organized in Chicago, New York, Seattle, Portland, and Boston, and hold annual meetings of members of chapters of fraternities in W. P. P . A. Among theW. P. P . A. Committees known to be in process of organization this year are those located in Washington, D. C., P hiladelphia, Indianapolis, P ittsburgh, and Iowa City . Q. How often does the Association convene? A. W . P. P. A. convenes biennially. The last convention was held October, 1939 at the vVardman Park Hotel, vVashington, D. C., with an attendance of 100 registered delegates representing chapters in fifty-two colleges, schools or universities. For details, see J anuary, 1940 issue of Career. Q. What are its activities in the field of occupational information and guidance? A . A Bureau of Information was authorized in 1937 to make a survey of fields open to women with existing vacancies in the various occupations requiring professional training. As a result of a study made by the Bureau, the Association in 1939 created an Advisory Council "to develop the work of professional women and to further their employment." A statement of some length about W. P. P . A . and its activities is included in the forthcoming publication compiled by the Occupational Information and Guidance Service of the U . S. Office o f Education. Q.

Does the Association have a publica-

tion? A. Yes, the official publication is Ca.reer. which replaces the former Bulletin. The purpose is to publish articles by professional leaders and members discussing various types of openings for professional college women, information on selection and employment in different field s, and brief reports.

News Behind the News Great Bend Alumnae Chapter has held its "Round-Up" On J anuary 25th Elizabeth Gunn called us for our first " Round Up" in the form of a one o'clock luncheon at her new California Colonial home. The Valentine motif was used in her table appointment. Following the spring luncheon we withdrew to her restful living room to enter upon our first phase of business-the election of officers. The remainder of the afternoon was spent m remmtsmg. Again, March 22nd, we were "corralled" for a 路delightful afternoon session with Marjorie Schenkel at her new home on Lakin A venue. vVe attended to a great deal of business, and

did we enjoy our delicious refre hments. Plea e, do it again, Marg ! Our April meeting is to be a downtown luncheon with Elizabeth Watson as hostess. We are anticipating "much" at her "Prairie PowWO\V."

A number of towns are holding Frontier Celebrations so I've, endeavored to give you a taste by a few expressions used here. Altho we are not complying with their customs of growing beards and wearing ten gallon Stetsons-this is, the present atmosphere in which we live. In behalf of the Great Bend Alumnce Chapter I cordially invite all Alpha Sigs in Great Bend or vicinity to join with us.

News Letters-Alumnae Chapters ALVA, OKLAHOMA In February, the first meeting for 1941 was h~ld at the home of Lorinda Lane with Ada Lane asststing. After a very pleasant period of just ;isiting Lorinda presented her two, A~a s two daughters and two friends of the gtrls m a mtscellaneous program. These talented young lad.ies gav~ a very complete program of musi~ ~nd readmgs whtch was enjoyed by all. The patnottc theme ~as used in the refreshment course. Three of the acttve chapter, Leota Leeper, Katherine Quinton and Jonnie Lane, gave us an invitation to the Gamma Gamma's Twenty-fifth Birthday Dinner Dance. We have had two or three of our active chapter members at each of our meetings this winter and hope they have enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed having them. Several of the alumn~ attended the birthday celebration which was held at the Hotel Bell . You can read elsewhere in THE PHOENIX for details but I must say it was a beautiful affair and showed mu~h thoughtful planning. It was made more lovely by Mtss Shockley being there to cut the cake. The many greetings and gifts were enjoyed by .all who attend~d. We were guests of Racine Sptcer and Paul me Haworth for a St. Patrick's Day Rook Dessert. Catherine Weibner and Clara Williams, actives, were special guests. High score prize was given to Eva Wood after a "hard fought battle." At the business meeting it was decided we were not ready to make definite plans for the Chicago Convention. Therefore, no report on our delegate at this time. Theta Donley Musgrave is to leave soon for Alaska where her husband is being transferred. He is in Civil Service work. We wish to extend our sympathy to Vera Leeper Cullison and Jesse in the death of Jesse's father. They had planned to attend Gamma Gamma's birthday celebration. We will have two more meetings before summer. Miss Shockley ana I will have the April meeting. The May meeting will be in honor of the Gamma Gamma graduates and will be in the home of Luella Harzman.

BUFFALO, NEW YORK Hildegarde Repsher opened her home on Winspear Avenue for the F ebruary meeting of directors. A letter of thanks was read from eight chubby Alpha Sigs for the snack shower given at Sorority House recently. Beta Beta Chapter's silver anmversary announcement was read also. Many very good wishes to your chapter. After all arrangements for the March meeting were completed, the girls were ushered into a candle-lighted dining room and found their places marked by cute little wax chewing gum favors representing dogs, cats, bunnies and many other ani-

mals. After eating Hilly's delicious food, her guests thanked her and though it was late reluctantly took themselves home. • There was spring in the air when forty-four Buffalo Alumn~ gathered for luncheon in the Raleigh Room of MacDoel's Restaurant, on Saturday, March 8th. Ruth Lies, chairman of the day, was ably assisted by Mary Blackstone's telephone committee. One of the highlights of the afternoon was the app~ar­ ance of Dot Hess wearing a lovely engagement nng and announcing that she will be Mrs. Richard Ferrand soon. The latest styles are always evident when a meeting brings a group of Alpha Sigs together. Dot Pi~r­ son presided in a smart outfit of black and whtte and Mary Lennie, our secretary, was charming m a biege and brown costume. We were thrilled when Edna Grampp, our Card Party Chairman, announced that we made over $70 net on that affair. Rose Kraft proved to be our champion ticket seller with thirty-six to her creditorchids to Rose . With a thought for others, a collection was made in behalf of "Bundles for Britain." The meeting was adjourned and a "gab-fest" ensued. It really was a swell-elegant get together. The directors were delightfully received by Harriet Smith on the evening of March 24th. She was a picture of sophistication in a flowing black velvet hostess gown with a front panel of lipstick red. Our president, Dot Pierson, presided and plans were made for the election of officers at the April meeting . . Harriet served beautiful little 1>andwiches with tea or coffee and little cakes. We all had a lovely evemng. A very, very rainy day didn't daunt the thirty Alpha Sigs who were entertained at a spring luncheon April 5th at Hildegarde Kayser's lovely home. The large table in the dining room was laid with a beautiful lace cloth, centered by a striking arrangement of waxy white sweet peas and green fern. Small tables were set up in the living room which all made it comfortable and cozy. Election of officers constituted the main part of the business meeting. Our new president is Frances Wedekindt; vice-president, Louise Abrams; secretary, Lois Conroy; federation chairman, Dorothy Hess; courtesy chairman, Jean Vetter. Our delegate to convention next summer will be Frances Wedekindt with Louise Abrams as al~ernate. After election a representative from the Federation of Women's Clubs, Mrs. Van Marie, was introduced and she explained all about Federation Day at Adam, Meldrum and Anderson Co., one of our leading department stores. After adjournment, the girls put on rubbers and opened umbrellas to start home but they all had had a lovely day. RosE KRAFT.


BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS The February meeting of the Boston Alumn:e was our only supper gathering of the year. It was held at the Brittany Coffee Shop. The purpose of this shop is unique in that the profits are used for the support of a nursing organization. The waitresses wear the native costumes of Brittany and a great deal of the china they use in their service has French proverbs on it. A few of the girls were kept busy translating them for the rest of us. Edith Howlett, Florence Haley, and Katherine Rickards were the hostesses for the meeting. "Hocky" (Louise Hockaday) , had changed her name the previous week to Mrs. Parker Lund, Jr., so the girls presented her with an old-fashioned bouquet in honor of the occasion. "Hocky" was speechless for once, as she did not realize the news had been circulated. At present "Hocky" is residing in Washington, D. C. She will be touring the country with her husband who is a member of Dean Hudson's Band. Alpha 路 Sigmas everywhere, do not be greatly surprised when a little blonde drops in on you unexpectedly; it will be "Hocky." She is hoping to get acquainted with many of the Alpha Sigmas. She is depending on A. S. A. to help her get better acquainted with the city she may be calling home for a short time. At this February gathering Etta Christiansen gave a book review of Lin Yutang's new book, With Love and Irony. In this collection of essays on American and Chinese customs, he has interwoven his own philosophy of life. In some cases, he pokes fun, but in a friendly manner, at our American ideas. Then he shows the difference between the Chinese and 路 American outlooks on life. Etta, who is an Assistant Librarian at Boston University, School of Education, certainly knows how to arouse your interest in a book by reading the right sections without giving too much away. Kitty Hale reviewed The D ynasty of Death by Taylor Caldwell. This book is the development of Ernest Barbour, who is the head of the family . It clearly shows how cruel and merciless he is in his treatment of all who cross his path in his great drive for power. The happiness of his wife, daughter, or sons means nothing to him in his desire to gain power, wealth, and position. The title comes from the fact that Ernest Barbour's dynasty is established through the wealth he gains from his munition and steel plants. Kitty certainly created interest enough, so that we wanted to know what happens to Gertrude, his daughter, to Amy, the girl he jilts when he discovers that she is not the heiress to the Session millions, and the unhappiness that other characters suffer due to their association with Ernest. Kitty assured us, if we enjoyed this book, we would like the sequel, The Eagles Gather. In March we were entertained by Louise Santosuosso, who was assisted by Dot Atwood, our president, and Gertrude Yorke as co-hostesses. Louise's home is located in Chestnut Hill and has a view of the Gothic buildings on Boston College campus.


Louise and Gertrude are both members of the Active chapter, but they enjoy the Alumn:e meetings so much that they were granted special permission to attend our gatherings. We are looking forward to the time when they will be full-Hedged Alumn:e, as they have a great deal to offer us. After our business meeting, at which we elected our delegate to Convention, Dot Currier, we had an A. S. A. sing. Theta Theta has two new songs, one for Pledge Day and the other for Initiation. Then our hostesses served us with sandwiches and cakes that expressed the spirit of March to us. The theme of the refreshments was St. Patrick's Day. Green and white were the colors used in making the fillings of the sandwiches and the icing on the cakes. Also there was an assortment of cookies. Louise's mother received a vote of thanks for her delicious coffee--our weak, or you might call it our strong point-COFFEE. The Alumn:e attended the March business meeting of the Active chapter to help them plan their Rushing and to路 suggest names of prospective candidates, who are doing part-time study in the School of Education. The Alumn:e are going to entertain the Active chapter and their Rushees, the first Saturday in April at Mary McAuley's home in Winchester at a Tea. This is all the news for now. See you all at Convention in 路 August. KATHARINE M. H ALE.

CANTON, OHIO Canton Alumn:e have the coming Convention in mind, and our March meeting was an effort to raise money for it. We each took a guest with us to the home of Mary Carfagna. She and Mary Miller were eo-hostesses for an evening of bridge. They served a dainty lunch and gave the prizes. Each of us paid fifty cents for our own and our guests tickets so the sorority cleared a dollar a table. It was an easy and pleasurable way of giving a benefit bridge. We are going to need more money-makers so will look through THE PHOENIX for ideas. April 14th we will meet at the home of our president, Dorothy Stough. JAYN E URBAN.

CLEVELAND, OHIO On February 15, we had our annual Valentine Sweetheart party at Ruth Vorhees' home. It was a midnite supper affair. The heart-shaped jello salad, assorted sandwiches, cake, and coffee made delicious refreshments. Doc (Dr. Ralph Vorhees) had been bartender at his soft drink bar earlier in the evening. There were tables of contract, auction, and Chinese checkers. Eleanor Hanna and Ruth made the arrangements for the party and it was a great success. Our March meeting was held at the Lakewood home of Ada Harvey. Miss Wilhelmina Converse of the Blossom Hill School for Girls, gave an inspiring talk on the activities there. This school is

43 Quizz program sponsored by the Cracked Nuts Co. Peggy Langhorn was hostess, assisted by Naomi Stone, Nora Hetland, Helena Dugan and Irene Holland. There were twenty Alpha Sigs in the "Studio" audience. A new high in hilarity was hit in the Amateur Contest when the Three Z's, Zachary, Zeke and Zeb, (Barbara Oxley, Peggy â&#x20AC;˘ Watson and Marion Thornton), came in from the farm to win the prize with their hill-billy music. They performed with whistles, horn tooters, a washboard, pan lids and drums. Margaret Kitts was the little girl with a problem who was seeking advice and a chance to do her toe dance (accompanied by a hot water bottle and smelling salts). Then the Dizz Dids (Polly Schlosser, Helen Harvat, Esther Wheaton and Helen Wiscomb) answered many difficult questions. A general quizz contest resulted in many prizes and stunts. The Studio Cooks, Betty Crocker (Nora Hetland) and Aunt Jemima (Naomi Stone) served creamed chicken and waffles accompanied by sliced tomatoes and water cress. Home-made cookies and candy completed the menu. A Kra-Z time was had by all. We are very proud these days because we got the subscription to the Reader's Digest which was offered as the prize in the National Magazine Contest. It was won by Peggy Langhorn. We are out to win it again. The next affair we are looking forward to attending is the May Spring Tea at Margaret Bedford's house. Here we will have election of officers. An effort will be made to get all Alpha Sigs who are new in Denver or who do not come regularly to come to this tea as honor guests. This will be the last party of the year, a year that has seen many delightful affairs, friendships renewed and new ones made in the Denver Alumna:. So we all see anew the joys of being an Alpha Sigma Alpha not just in college but through all our years. IRENE HoLLAND.

DETROIT, MICHIGAN Our meeting in April was held at the lovely home of Mrs. Harold Chapel in Birmingham, Michigan. After the usual chatter had been hushed, our election of officers for the coming year took place. Our new officers are: President-Mrs. Louis Landry, 13522 Kentucky Avenue. Vice-President-Mrs. Harvey Bumgardner, 2010 Roseland Avenue, Royal Oak, Michigan. Treasurer-Mrs. Harry Rambler, r8286 Indiana. Recording Secretary- Mrs. Paul Irwin, 15717 Whitcomb. Corresponding Secretary-Mrs. Earl Lutz, 14044 Abington Road. PHOENIX Correspondent-Mrs. Austin McCallister, rsor8 Biltmore. On April 26th, many of our group are going to Ypsilanti for the initiation of Mu Mu. Some of our own members are also being initiated at that time.

Our final meeting in June is to be a very special luncheon at Orchard Lake Country Club where our me~?ers will have the opportunity of enjoying in additlO~ to .the customary visiting, sailing, golfing, and swimmmg. This will terminate our activities for the time being but we will all be looking forward to another busy year. FRANCES FREDENBURG.

HUNTINGTON, W. VA. Helen Maxwell entertained nine of us March 5th. A delectable St. Patrick's Day salad course was served us, during w?ich we enjoyed Irish melodies played on an accordian. Our visiting musician was Billy Cyrus, a student of Helen's. Devotionals were read by Edith Shafer in the absence of our chaplain, Frances Booton. Tickets with instructions for raffling a dress were distributed to each member. Doris Lawson, president, read a letter about the qualifications of delegates to National Convention. We talked and talked about the convention, and we are hoping that one, or some, of us may go. We were all delighted to have Marie Grim Green (Mrs. Edward Green) and Josephine Peters as new members. Marie Green was a former member of Delta Delta at Ohio University, Athens, Ohio, while Josephine Peters comes to us from Rho Rho of Marshall College here in Huntington, W. Va. April and spring is here! The lovely jonquils that decorated Frances Booton's home when she and Mary Lillyan Gorsuch entertained us on the second made us feel that spring was "just around the corner." This meeting was devoted to business. Our organization realized a nice profit from the dress raffie. We decided this money should go toward sending our delegate, Josephine Peters, to National Convention this summer. We plan to send an Easter gift of money to the girl at Marshall College whom we are helping. Much joy has been experienced by each of us in helping one who has not been as fortunate as we when we were in college . .The f~llo~ing officers were elected who will begin their duties 111 September, 1941: President, Helen Maxwell; vice-president, Dorothy Callicoat; secretary, Effie Mae Thomas; treasurer, Mildred Kincaid; editor, Josephine Peters; chaplain, Edith Shafer. A special meeting was called for May 6th at Edith Shafer's home to devise plans for our annual spring picnic and to discuss raising money for our delegate's expenses to convention. With all best wishes for an enjoyable summer and a most successful 1941 Convention, I remain Faithfully yours in A. S. A., EDITH SHAFER.

INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA The annual party for the Chi Chi Alumna: mothers, honoring St. Valentine, was held this year at the Sundial Tea Room. The program included several songs- "Grace Before Meat," "I Love You Truly,


44 Dear A. S. A.," "Mothers' Song," and "Hymn to Alpha Sigma Alpha." Highlight of the program was the review of the book, The Vanishing Vi1路ginian, given by Jane McDavitt. Favors were corsages of red sweet peas and white freezias, given to the mothers, and place cards were cleverly designed hearts, made for us by Letha Gaskins. To have our mothers with us always makes a particularly happy occasion. On March 1 our monthly meeting was called at the home of Frances Shaw. Dorothy Kimberlin was assistant hostess. In the absence of our president, Dorothy Karrman, the vice-president, Julia Gerlach, presided. Formal notice from National Vice-President, Esther Bucher, of National Convention to be held in Chicago this summer was read. Our president, Dorothy Karrmann, was voted official delegate. Dorothy at that time was in hospital for an operation, but is now back home and fully recovered. We are surely happy to have her "on deck" again. Our April meeting, on the 5th, was at the home of Jean McCammon. (By the way, Jean has just had a short story accepted for publication by the mao-azine, "Children's Activities"!) "' At this meeting announcement was made of the recent arrival of a son in the home of our National Secretary. Congratulations and best wishes, Thelma! Convention was the main topic of discussion. Our chapter plans to send an alternate. Various ideas for doing this were discussed. A friend of mine who is skilled at reading character in hands has offered to give a lecture for our sorority. We have accepted, and on ~ay 19 Mrs. Margaret Trombley Gerard w1ll talk on ~ands of Interesting People" for our group and the1r guests and friends at the Indiana World War Memorial. Thank you so very much, Margaret, for the pleasant occasion to which we look forward. "Your correspondent" was made chairman in charge of arrangements for the lecture. Then, much to her embarrassment, and great delight!-was chosen as the alternate to be sent to Chicago. May we see many, many of you at Convention in August, and may all of you have a delightful summer. WILMA MAE WoLF.

JOHNSTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA The first Saturday of every month is still our regular meeting day and the place is usually the Spamsh Room of our local Dairy Dell. We like the Spanish Room for several reasons: first, because it is a lovely private room for a meeting and is convenient for our girls; the delicious home-cooked food路 the capable service and Marion (Broderick) O'Don~ nell, one of ou~ ~wn A. S. A.'s, is the most charming hostess, thus g1vmg her a chance to join us in her spare moments. Mrs. O 'Donnell and Mary Duncan Curran, another dependable A . S. A., were two of the first A . S. A.'s from this section.

Our December meeting was a Christmas Party held at the home of our president, Bernice (Anstead) Berkebile. Cards were the main event of the evening. Each girl brought a gift with her and as one entered, she drew a number, put half on her gift which she brought, and the other half in a vase. Later in the evening each girl drew a number-and Santa was good to everyone.路 Our hostess served refreshments appropriate for Christmas. At the February meeting Mary D. Curran brought as a guest Miss Ya Fu Lee, a Chinese student at Seton Hill College, Greensburg, Pa. Miss Lee related some very interesting things to us. At our March meeting, Alta (Welsh) McKelvie, told us of her recent trip to Florida. She and her husband had two weeks of fun on the beach and fishing. We had a very lovely time on Friday evening, April 4th, at the home of Mrs. Curran, in Windber, Pa. She had our annual Easter Party for us as she did the past two years. We played cards and Arlene Miller and Elaine Hastings were awarded the prizes. Dainty Easter Greeting placecards were part of the table decorations along with a centerpiece of the Alpha Sigma Alpha flowers. A very tasty lunch was served. Despite of a rainy evening, twelve members attended. Several of the girls were ill and therefore couldn't attend. Prior to the party we held a business meeting and elected officers. Bernice (Anstead) Berkebile was re-elected president, Sarah Miller was elected secretary, Alta (Welsh) McKelvie was elected treasurer . Miss Arlene Miller, a graduate of Indiana State Teachers College in 1938, has announced her engagement to Robert Hoffman. They are to be married on June 8, 1941 in Johnstown. She was president of A. S. A. her senior year and is - a teacher in the Ferndale Schools. MARY Jo MAYER.

KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI One of the most delightful winter meetings of the Kansas City Alumna: Chapter was .the Patriotic Tea at the home of Jean Hutchinson, Sunday afternoon, February 16. Assisting hostesses were Jo Wady, Dorothy Hutchinson and Virginia Corder. Mrs. Anderson told us of the recent series of books written about the rivers of America. She then gave us a very interesting review of the book "Illinois River." After being served tea from the beauti~~l~y arrange.d t.ea table, we sat about the fireplace VISiting and smgmg Alpha Sig songs. The March News Letter informed us that Esther Bucher, Mary Hamlin and Daphene Copenhaver would be the Irish Lassies entertaining us to a St. Patrick's luncheon. Any doubt we may have had as t~ their ability to represent the Irish was quickly dtspelled by our gracious hostesses. The new alumna: by-laws were read and approved at the business meeting. Daphene Copenhaver reported $41.80 had been received for magazine sub-

scriptions, giving us a commtsston of $7.20 to add to the Fellowship Fund. After the luncheon and business meeting, Mary Hamlin directed 路several entertaining games. GEORGIA OLDHAM.

It will not be long until we will be celebrating our first anniversary. We are expecting a much more successful '41-'42 for they say that a child's first year is the hardest. JEsSIE JoNES BARNARD.



Our February Valentine Luncheon was indeed a "ducky" affair. Huntington Park had one of its famous downpours of our rainy season. However, sixteen of our venturesome members floated in to "The Palms" and we had a chatty time. Rosa came in her rubber boots. Miss Small came out to join in paying tribute to our St. Valentine. Marie Berry brought a very unique table decoration made out of red and white hearts. In the absence of our President, Nelle Grant presided in her gracious manner. After the luncheon, Louise Hindes gathered in subscriptions for the Magazine Subscription Fund, and we all played bridge. In April we will be guests of Nelle Grant, and install our officers for the coming year. We hope to have more information about our National Convention to be held in August, and are hoping Chicago won't be too far away for us to trek.

On Saturday, February 8th, the New York Chapter was entertained at a Valentine party at the home of Emma Coleman Frost in Elmhurst, Long Island. The Pi Pi girls were the committee in charge. The gathering commenced with a most delicious luncheon consisting of soup with red hearts in it, a special Valentine salad, piping hot rolls, all topped off with strawberry sundaes and home-made cookies. It means so much to us to have "home ec" graduates in our midst. We certainly do appreciate their efforts -and their results! After the luncheon we retired to the game room for our business meeting and entertainment. Ethel Peterson read us a note from Ruth Heckman, a former secretary of our chapter, who is now an active member of the Pittsburgh alumna: group. We did so enjoy hearing from her once again. Rosamond Root, our president, read the list of missing addresses from THE PHOENIX to see if any members present could offer any helpful information. Miss Root then gave us a report on the activities of the Women's Professional Panhellenic Association. We learned that theW. P. P. A. dinner scheduled 路for February had been called off and tentatively changed to a tea to be held sometime in March. Miss Root urged all Alpha Sigs to turn out for the event. After the business meeting was concluded we all joined in playing crazy bridge which ended up with some of us being rewarded with chocolate hearts for our afternoon's labor. Seventeen members were present, including Dorothy Larrabee, Gladys Young, Betty Stratemeier, Alice Brown, Betty McGrath, Beverly Klopp, Marion Thomas, Billie Barrett, V ernabelle Barlette, Ida Jewett, Ruth Jeremy, Ethel Peterson, Carolyn Wasgatt, Emma Frost, and Ruth Puis of the Buffalo chapter who happened to be in town fo r the weekend. Our clever hostess had posted on the wall of the game room all replies from members who had both accepted and declined. We enjoyed reading the lines penned by our fellow Alpha Sigs. On February 24th the New York Chapter was greatly honored by a surprise visit from Wilma Wilson Sharp. Rosamond Root received word on a Sunday and spent all the rest of that路 day making phone calls, and sending telegrams and night letters. She worked untiringly to get a delegation of some kind together to meet Mrs. Sharp. Such a job is much harder than one thinks with so few of us living in New York and most of us out in the suburbs, some as far as sixty miles away. All Miss Root's hard work finally got her a group of twelve girls to meet and entertain Mrs. Sharp, who arrived


MUNCIE, INDIANA I would like to tell about our annual dance, but, as yet, I have no definite information about it. I imagine the college chapter can tell you a great deal about it, so I recommend you to their article. We have not had our election of officers as yet, but I will probably be able to tell you all about it in our next issue. We have been having a true spring here, and its been grand weather for promoting love, laziness, and the sale of patent medicines. We certainly hope you have been inoculated with some of the same, and I hope that a robin wakes you up every morning at 5:30, and you'll know how I'm feeling. But I wouldn't trade my robin for a snowstorm! See you in THE PHoENIX! JuNE WILKINsoN.

NATCHITOCHES, LOUISIANA During the months since Christmas, we have found it impossible to meet because most of the girls are teaching or are away at school. Jo Tarlton teaches second grade at Singer; La Verne Killen has charge of the music at Jena; Dot Calvin is a senior at L. S. U.; Rosemary Easley is there with her husband who is doing graduate work; Angie Dell Ballard has the responsible position as head of the N. Y. A. Dormitory there. We have four other Psi Psi girls living in, or near, our state capital and, although, we DON'T want to lose another girl from the alumna: group, we do wish for someone to move to Baton Rouge so that we may have a third alumna: chapter in Louisiana.


at Grand Central and was then taken to the American Women's Association Club House on 57th Street. Following a delicious dinner and a most enjoyable evening spent chatting together Mrs. Sharp was taken down to the Biltmore Hotel. Here she was met by Carol 路 Pierce who had been unable to get to the A. W. A. Club House' due to having to show travel pictures at the Biltmore. After more visiting Carol saw to it that Wilma Sharp was put safely on her Boston bound train. We all so enjoyed meeting Mrs. Sharp and were flattered by her visit. May she soon drop in on us again! On March 8th Miss Root arranged a delightful luncheon and meeting for us at the A. W. A. Club House. A foot of snow fell on the streets of New York and the surrounding territory the night before. Nevertheless, fourteen of us braved the storm for Alpha Sig. Billie Barrett, Lenore Fagerstrom, Ethel Peterson, Gladys Young, Isabelle Henson, Dorothy Larrabee, Ruth Jeremy, Vernabelle Barlette, Betty Stratemeier, Kathryn Mayer, Marion Thomas, Alice Brown, Elsy Jessup, and Rosamond Root all turned out in spite of the weather. We were all glad to hear the good news that Em Frost had received a teaching appointment in New Rochelle, New York-having proved herself such an excellent home economics substitute there for a month previous. Miss Root reported to us on the plans for the W. P. P. A. tea to be held March 29th at the American Woman's Association Club House from three to five. We discussed prominent Alpha Sigs who were to be guests of honor at the tea. We decided that all Alpha Sigs would meet in a body at three o'clock to be sure to make a good showing at the tea. After visiting and talking ourselves out we finally adjourned at four o'clock. The day of the W. P. P. A . tea finally came around. On March 29th many people of member fraternities gathered at the American Women's Association Club Ho.use on ~est 57th Street. They represented educatiOn, musiC, home economics law ' and' p harmacy, drama, commerce, physical education, speech art. Each of the fourteen member fraternities presented their guests of honor for the day. Alpha was. proud to present Evelyn Bell, our National President, Professor Ida A . Jewett of Columbia, and Professor Clare Zyve of New York University. Those members of the New York Alumna: Chapter who had not met Evelyn Bell before were of course most pleased to make her acquaintance. Carol Pierce was also on the job to help us out. "'\fter delicious sandwiches, cake, cookies, and candies, we retired to the comfortable seats of the American Room lounge to listen to a most enjoyable program. Entertaining music was presented followed by an address by Vashti Burr, national president of

efforts on the W. P. P. A council so helped make the day a memorable one. Those members of the New York chapter not present at the tea will be sorry to learn of the sudden death of Ethel Peterson's father on March 2oth. Ethel is \:;he Pi Pi so responsible for the organizing and carrying on of our chapter. To her we extend our deepest sympathy. We welcome all New York Alpha Sigs to our next meeting to be held May roth in Upper Mountclair, New Jersey. Billie Barrett will be the hostess. Much fun is anticipated in all going from New York together on the same bus. GLADYS L. yOUNG.

OXFORD, OHIO Mary Jane Falknor resigned as secretary to Dr. Vallance, head of the Bureau of Recommendations of Miami University, to become secretary to the President of Ohio Wesleyan University. She is also organizing a Bureau of Recommendations at Ohio Wesleyan. Alma Molitor is instructing a class in first aid for the members of the Miamisburg Business and Professional Women's Club. Alma is an American Red Cross instructor. The April meeting of Oxford Chapter is scheduled for April 5th. The meeting will be a social affair held in Dayton. The hostess is Madeline Watson. VIRGINIA NEIBEL.

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA We celebrated St. Valentine's Day with a dessertbridge at Drexel Student Union Building. Libby Schwalm, Mary Rasmussen and Betty Towner arranged for our good time and provided ice cream molds with red A . S. A. insignia that looked goodbut tasted better. Many alums were present and mingled to play bridge with actives from K. K. and N . N . chapters. In March we had election of officers. Since this is always a weakening process, we fortified ourselves by bringing box lunches. The ballot was made out and it was voted to have our future president represent us at Convention. We are planning a dinner meeting to be held in April to present our new officers. There is a promise of favors and fun for all, so we will certainly have the usual good time. On June 7th our formal dance will be at Curtis Hall .. This building is located in the midst of very beautiful sunken gardens, and provides much room for dancing and star gazing. And what with music, gardens, and stars-who knows, we may have much to report next fall! MARY THOMAS.

W. P. P. A.


It had been a most successful occasion. We had made many new interesting acquaintances and thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon . Many thanks to Rosamond Root and Lenore Fagerstrom whose untiring

March the first! And St. Louis Alumna: celebrated St. Patrick's Day with a lovely tea at Helen Griffith's home in Webster Groves. Louise Moore was the assisting hostess. This was our guest meet-

MAY, 1941 ing of the year and we are proud to say that we had a very attractive meeting. Mrs. Ann Ryan, accompanied by Miss Wood, sang two numbers, "Ave Maria" and "The Iris." Mrs. R. S. Bass reviewed "Life With Father" by Clarence Day. On April 5th we held our meeting at Irene Cole's with Margaret Sutton as assisting hostess. Emma Krotzer gave a very interesting travelogue on her recent trip to South America. She had many pictures and interesting exhibits to show. Our last meeting of the year will be combination picnic and election of officers, sometime in May. We always enjoy our picnics as it is the one time in the year when husbands and dates are accepted at our meetings. The St. Louis Alumna: Chapter hopes that all Alpha Sigs have a pleasant summer and is very envious of all who are to have the pleasure of attending our convention in Chicago. We are wishing we could all be there! LoUISE CosBY QmcK.

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA That many famous people have passed through San Diego during the past years on their way to enjoy horse racing at Agua Caliente, Mexico, is no secret. That so many of them have stopped in San Diego to arrange deep sea fishing trips to Los Coronados Islands, Mexico, is not so well known . And certainly it is not well known that one of our own Alpha Sigs .has the pleasure not only of arranging these big game trips, but also of having dinners with so many interesting people and in many instances visiting in their homes. Now of course no Alpha Sig trained so traditionally for teaching could ever negotiate such a radical departure alone. As usual there must be a man in the case-and this time it is Joe, genial sportsman husband of Margaret Basinger. Tired business and professional men, bored movie and radio stars are among the thousands who seek relaxation in fishing. Just to name a few who have become good friends of Joe's and Margaret's are, Dr. Edward Lippe, retired dentist who is a composer and coach for Nelson Eddy, Dr. E. J. O'Brien, famous surgeon and chest specialist of Detroit whose work is described in De Kruif's "The Fight for Life," Dale Carnegie, Dr. R. L. Sutton, best known dermatologist in the United States, Jay Irving, whose cartoons appear regularly in Collier's, Bing Crosby, Clark Gable, Al Pearce, Lum and Abner, Victor Moore, Fibber McGee, Preston Foster, Don Ameche and Andy Devine. However, Joe's two very best friends are Bob Paine of the Scripps-Howard Newspapers, and Frank Armstrong, attorney for an oil company and Margaret says they are very, very eligible young bachelors so perhaps we teachers should do a little briny deep relaxing, a la fishing?! And isn't it a happy privilege for one to be able to turn an avocation into



47 su~h a pleasurable business? Another proof we thmk, of the desirability of living in San Diego. I.n addition to this Margaret has been Program Chatrman and President of the Delphian Club for the past two years. In this capacity she has brought to San Diego a score of splendid speakers. The club has been making a study of the countries of the Eastern Mediterranean. JESSIE E. WALKER.

SHREVEPORT, LOUISIANA The Shreveport Chapter of Alpha Sigma Alpha has not had its Spring Meeting hecause there are plans afoot to convene on the campus of our Alma Mater at Natchitoches in a joint meeting with the Natchitoches Chapter. This will give many of the girls an opportunity to inspect the recently completed sorority house as well as the greatly enlarged and beautified campus. We are of the opinion that the association with the active college group and the opportunity to exchange ideas and discuss problems. with another Alumna: Group wi ll prove beneficial to all persons concerned. Plans for the convention at the Edgewater Beach Hotel in August are most intriguing. I wish that I could say definitely that our chapter will be represented. However, it is much too early for this busy group of school teachers and working girls to foresee the events and possibilities of August. The Natchitoches Meeting will consider the convention as a major issue and I sincerely hope that as a result, some of us will be seeing many of our sisters in Chicago. There are fourteen names on our roll , although we have never had full attendance at a meeting. Those present hold a business meeting prior to adjourning to the Zephyr Room in the WashingtonYouree Hotel for luncheon. Two hours in such a pleasant environment is the minimum time spent reviewing college days and enjoying another gettogether. Usually there are visitors, including Miss Clio Allen, faculty adviser from the college chapter in Natchitoches. More news will follow the spring meeting. With sincerest regards to all Alpha Sigs everywhere, The Shreveport, La., Alumna: Chapter, SARAH JoYNER, Secretary.

TULSA, OKLAHOMA The March meeting was held in the new home of Mrs. J. R. Reeve. Assisting her was Rena Mae Long. The luncheo"n tables were decorated befitting the occasion and St. Pat's Day. When finding our places we discovered that there was to be a wedding soon-our place cards read Edna Trent and Wilson Bills. The date set will be in June. Around the tables were- Mrs. Wm. Row, Mrs. H. Clay Fisk, Mrs. Fred Halladay, Mrs. J. C. Darby, Mrs. J. R.


Reeve, Mrs. A. W. Magers, Mrs. Paul Hamm, Edna Trent, Hazel Rennie, Julia Christie, and Mrs. E. H. Gabriel and Mrs. Solomon, whom we were so pleased to have in our group. We hope that they will continue to come as all the new members we have had this year, have continued to attend . A business meeting followed and plans were made for sending a delegate to the convention; she is Rena Mae Long. otes gathered between lines were-those of us liv-

ing in new homes are Mrs. Gabriel, Mrs. Row, Mrs. Reeve and Mrs. Hamm. Also we learned that Mrs. Row gained a new daughter, Rosalie, October 26. She is an Eta Eta and was Hazel Howell. Our chapter is helping with Red Cross work and is quite enthusiastic. Mrs. Reeve and Miss Long were charming hostesses, the test was that-everyone had an enjoyable afternoon.




News Letters-College Chapters ALPHA


State Teachers College, Farmville, Virginia

Kirksville State Teacher Kirksville, Missouri

Dear Alpha Sigs: We've just had election for next year and are so pleased with our new officers that we're almost eager for next year to come to try 'em out. "Polly" Keller was re-elected president, while Winifred Wright, a town girl and junior next year, was elected vice-president. Gene Handy Kilmon of the Eastern Shore of Virginia was chosen secretary. Another Eastern Shore girl, Kitty Powell, was elected treasurer. Caroline Eason of Richmond will be our chaplain next year, and Ella Marsh Pilkinton, also of Richmond, will serve as registrar. Mary Jane Ritchie, another Richmonder, is our new collegiate representative. Shirley McCalley will again next year attempt to keep you informed about Alpha Chapter. Along with chapter elections, our major and minor officers of the college student body were elected. Caroline Eason, chaplain of the chapter, and Lucy Turnbull, this year's registrar, were elected vicepresidents ot the Student Body and the Y. W . C. A. respectively. We are proud of Alpha's representation in the Student Government. After our Easter holidays, we have our spring rushing. Again we will go through that unforgetable experience of trying to make the rushees see what we already know-that A. S. A. is the best. We have our fingers crossed already. A few weeks ago we entertained our pledges at a banquet at Longwood, the lovely old colonial home of Joseph E. Johnson, Confederate general. We old members hope the pledges enjoyed the food, songs, and air of good fellowship as much as we did. The second Saturday in May is the date of our annual May Day. In my last letter I told you of the three Alpha Sigs in the May Court. The entire college is anxiously awaiting this May Day, as it is to be different from any we have ever had. Instead of the traditional old English type, we decided this year that, because England in reality is no longer the England usually portrayed and is so vastly different, we would have an American May Day depicted by interpretative modern dance. This all sounds vague and confusing but the sum and substance is that through modern dance forms we hope to portray America from its early Indian days, through the pioneer times, up to the present day. The court members will each represent various nations of the world, while the queen will be America, the spirit of liberty. Spring is here at last. When spring comes, can June and vacation be far off? I know you're all as eager as we are to be home again. This is our last correspondence of this school year. I'll be back again next year, so 'till then. Loyally yours in A. S. A ., SHIRLEY McCALLEY.



Alpha Beta Chapter has just initiated five girls into active membership. We feel we have reason to be proud of one of our new actives, Hope Greene. Last month Hope went to St. Louis where she took a one-month course in professional Girl Scout work. Soon after Hope returned she accepted the position of Girl Scout director of the Southeast District of St. Louis. She will have nine hundred girls under her. Hope will graduate this May then she will take up her new job on June 1st. We installed our new officers last month, and we have all taken up our new duties. Helen Mayor, who is our convention delegate, is the president. The others are: Vice-president, Frances Rain; secretary, Betty Sue Gardiner; treasurer, Martha Rinehart; chaplain, June Britt; collegiate representative, Jeanette Monroe; registrar, Amy Ayres; and editor, Betty Hoyt. We feel we owe a lot to our outgoing officers. Our new registrar, Amy Ayres, has just returned from a debate trip to Excelsior Springs. She and her partner won second place in the tournament and they each received a medal. That medal surely looks nice. Amy has been winning other debate tournaments this year. Good work! We're proud of you, Amy. We're busy now planning our annual Breakfast Dance for the end of this month. It is in honor of the graduating seniors. We feel that the boys may not like our own cooking so we are trying something new by eating at the hotel after we have danced until eight. Good-by all you other Alpha Sigs for this sumn1er. BETTY HoYT.

BETA BETA Colorado State College of Education, Greeley, Colorado

This quarter has already been a busy and exciting one. The week from the thirty-first of March until the fourth of April was our rush. week set by our local Panhellenic Council. Coking dates and bull sessions ran all week long. Thursday and Friday nights we had our parties. The Alpha Sigs drew Friday night as the night for their party. It lasted from 6 o'clock until 9 o'clock. We all gathered at the chapter house and then went to the home of Mrs. West, our patroness, and had appetizers. The theme of the party was Easter and each place we went was lit by candlelight and decorated with bouquets of flowers and decorated to carry out our. theme. The next stop vvas for the main course and here were marshmallow rabbits with names for place cards and the favors which were sponge rabbits and ducks with soap inside of them. Then we all came back to the



chapter house and had dessert. After we had eaten .and while we were finishing eating we had a Professor Quiz who peppered us with questions typi~al of that type of program. Then we sang soronty songs and had several unexpected specialties by hitherto unknown talent in the sorority. We pledged five girls at the chapter house Sunday morning and then had a breakfast and all went to church. Wednesday night the pledges entertained the actives at a bowling party and then we all went coking. Beta Beta Chapter is now a charter member of the All-Greek Council which has just been organized on our campus. The purpose is to promote co-ordination and friendliness between Greeks on this campus. Each quarter every Greek organization .contributes $10 to the Council and an All-Greek dance is held. Two or three sororities or fraternities are on the committee responsible for the dance. We have already had one dance which was a great success. Non-Greeks can attend only if they have .a written invitation from the president of the Coun-cil. This is not to be exclusive but to encourage more to join Greek organizations as the Independents are very strong on this campus. Beta Beta Chapter is looking forward to a great many events of the college, including the Prom, Senior Ball, Hays Picnic and others; and then we have some entertainment of our own. We're having -our annual mountain party in May. Our housemother lets us use her cabin, Idlewild, which is very beautiful. We spend an entire week-end there, and our dates come up on Sunday. Of course we're having our spring formal the last of May. A lot of our girls are graduating this year but we will have a chapter of about eighteen girls back next year. We have a new carpet covering our living room and dining room and we also have new curtains . We're looking forward to a bigger and better year in the fall and I know all the other Alpha Sigs .are too-Good I uck!!! Yours in A. S. A. RuTH SMITH.

GAMMA GAMMA Northwestern St.ate Teachers College, Alva, Oklahoma

Another new year, another new group of offi-cers to carry on and lead us. They are as follows: President, Dorothy Harzman; vice-president, Leota Leeper; secretary, Catherine Weibner; treasurer, Octavia Doherty; registrar, Dorothy Certain; Collegiate representative, Clarice Benefiel; chaplain, Virginia Rose Provost; reporter, Gilberta Stiles; editor, Jonnie Lane; courtesy committee, Ella Louise Hyde, Anna Mae Householder; rush captain, Clara Williams; musician, Mary Grace Newlin; song leader, Traca Fern Waldrick. Impressive installation services were held April 1, for these officers. Miss Luella Harzman, treasurer of the Alumn:e, Miss Edna Donley, president of the

Alumn:e and our beloved Miss Shockley were special guests . Also we have welcomed into our active circle two new members, Virginia Rose Provost and Dorothy Brown. We are very sorry to lose one of our very helpful patronesses, Mrs. Traverse who has. moved to Fort Sill to be with her husband who IS a doctor at the fort. We mentioned hints of engagements in our last letter. One has developed to full bloom. Theobelle Leonhardt, the former editor, astonished the actives with the announcement of her approaching marriage of April I 1. Also Miss Dorothy Certain has proof that Mr. Capper has popped the question, with the glittering ring on the third finger of her left hand. Congratulations Theobelle and Dorothy . Miss Bertha Alice Green was home from nurses' training in Wichita during the month of March, to recuperate from an appendix operation. We are glad Traca Fern can be back in school. At our last meeting she was made Song Chairman (chairman to send songs to our National Council). Marguerite Elliott officiated at an initiation of Pi Kappa Delta, honorary debate fraternity, when five new members were initiated the last Qf March. We have royalty in our midst, Leota Leeper has been put up by the senior class as candidate for Queen of Queens. Also we might say, Leota has been a queen twice this year already. We're pushing for you Leota. Good Luck. Catherine Weibner just informed us that she will not be with us next year. She has a position as a teacher for a school near Waynoka. Our annual Star Dust dinner dance on February 28 was combined with our twenty-fifth anniversary of Founders' Day. We are very grateful to the Alumn<e who sent us silver offerings and to the Alumn:e groups and National officers who sent letters and telegrams commemorating our Silver Anniversary. The National Council surprised us with a most welcome gift. We appreciate this generous gift and plan to use it for initiation robes or a sorority room . The Silver Star Dinner itself was a great success. The stars gleamed more brightly than ever, overhead in the streamers of blue and silver, and in the favors . The silver tapers and silver frosted floral table decorations also emphasized this theme. At the conclusion of the dinner, Miss Shockley cut the huge three-tiered birthday cake with twentyfive silver candles and the cake was served with punch during the dance. Miss Spicer reports that the snack supper at the home of Mrs. Jennie Vinson Fisk, served by the Tulsa Alumn:e group during 0. E. A . convention, February 7th, was a delightful occasion. The table carried out beautifully, in all its appointments, the red and white theme and the gold and green theme. The Tulsa Journal of February 7th featured a Gamma Gamma Alumna, Edna D. Chamberlain as

sr the "Woman of the Week." Each week an outstanding woman of Tulsa is chosen to receive this title. Mrs. Chamberlain is the President of the Tulsa Classroom Teachers' Association and was sent in February as a delegate to the N. E. A. meeting in Atlantic City. Her hobbies are music, driving, cooking, home-making and civic service. Gamma Gamma Chapter rejoices that such a loyal alumna: has been honored. Alma Lois Rogers, one of our alumna: is president of A. A. U. W. and was sent to Ada, April 5-6 as a delegate to the State Convention of A. A. U. W. JoNNIE LANE.

EPSILON EPSILON Kansas State Teachers College, Emporia, Kansas

Spring is finally here. We have been looking forward to it for so long, because we have been anxious to wear our new milkman suits (white coveralls) with A. S. A. printed on the back. All over the campus you can see the suits flashing around. We have been very busy with social engagements, and school work this spring. We just had election and the new officers have been trying to get into the swing of their new positions. We elected as our new president Gerry Phillips. We know Gerry will make a grand president. She was asked to be a member of Xi Phi, an honorary leadership fraternity on our campus. Gerry is a very energetic girl and she will be an asset to our chapter as prexy. Helen Tubbs, senior, and Roberta Alspow, junior, were made members of the Gilson Players, which is quite an honor. In about two weeks we are going to start planning (or getting excited and ready) for our spring party. It is to be held May 17 at the Student Union. We all can hardly wait for it. This is our second big party of the year. We have a new assistant sponsor, Miss Forrest Erickson. The Alpha Sigs were really thrilled when she accepted assistant sponsorship. MARY EMILY RussELL.

ZETA ZETA Central Missouri State Teachers College, Warrensburg, Missouri

Dear Alpha Sigs: Will surprises never cease? I think not. Imagine mine, when reading THE PHoENIX, I discovered I have a twin in the Xi Xi Chapter. Hello Jane! I hope we may become friends in the near future. Zeta Zeta Chapter entertained their alumna: and daughters at a Valentine party. A dish which has been handed down to us by the older Zeta Zeta's and which we have christened the "Alpha Dish" was served at the party. After dinner we had several novel games. The grand finale came when the chapter sang their Alpha songs for their guests. An inventory showed our chapter to be composed almost

entirely of Commerce students with the exception of three Home Ec. students and two English majors. Our Pledge Dance was a big success. The stag line was on its toes the entire night. Two of our girls accompanied by the orchestra, sang two numbers. To make the perfect more perfect, we ended the dance with our Sweetheart Song. Now we are looking forward to our Spring Formal May 3rd. Two new pledges have joined us since the last writing. We're proud to introduce Lois Wyatt and Delorous McCormick to you as our "youngest Alpha Sigs." Vivagene Wheeler was initiated recently, raising our active membership to fifteen. Our recently elected officers are: Wilma Perkins, president. Wilma succeeds Kathryn Hopkins who has been our president for the past two years. Eleanor Warnick retained her office as vice-presiâ&#x20AC;˘ dent. Margaret Brady, a senior, is being succeeded in the treasurer's office by Kathryn Hopkins. Alice Jackson is not with us this quarter. Her position of secretary is being filled by Elizabeth Jacobs. Again the editor will be Jane Jackson. The office of chaplain, formerly held by Sarah Frances Gray, is now in the hands of Vivagene Wheeler. Mary Margaret Wood succeeds Betty Lou Herbert as Collegiate representative. Margaret Brady and Ruth Stormout (better known as "Stormy"), will graduate this spring. We'll miss Margaret and "Stormy" but we wish them the best of success in their chosen fields. April 3rd Mary Margaret Wood gave a vmce recital at the M. S. Church. April rsth Jane Cole will be initiated. April 30th the Alphas will entertain the Sig Taus. JANE JACKSON.

ETA ETA State Teachers College, Pittsburg, Kansas

Naida June Brannum second maid of honor to Kanza Queen. Naida also reigns as Apple Queen. Eta Eta holds election of officers. Wilma Wilson Sharp to inspect chapter. Loi Thompson crowned Rose of Sigma Tau. Plans being made for Spring Formal. Chapter to honor seniors and parents. On February 14 was the queen's dinner and the Coronation Ball for the Kanza Queen and her attendants. One of our girls, Naida June Brannum, was selected as second maid of honor. Naida is more commonly known as Pinky. In March the school in commemoration of the establishment of the College observed "Apple Day." There was a big celebration and several of our girls participated in the activities. Frances Hunt, Maxine Humbard, Geraldine Hopkins, Naida June Brannum and Nadine Hirni were chosen to assist the facu lty in passing out the apples. Miss Eulalia Roseberry, one of our sponsors, told the story of the first


"Apple Day." That night an Apple Prom was given. The outstanding event of the evening was the crowning of the first Apple Day Queen. We were fortunate in having Naida June Brannum, "Pinky," selected as the first queen. The second Tuesday in March was election night for Eta Eta Chapter. Marjorie Baxter, a junior of Winfield, was elected president. Marge will make us an outstanding president. June Mardelle Lowe, a freshman of Pittsburg, was selected as vice-president. Joyce Henny is the new secretary. Maxine Humbard was elected treasurer. Other officers are Frances Hunt, registrar; Betty Brackett, collegiate representative; Bette Deane Quier, chaplain; Mary Kay Reiff, editor; Virginia Suttee and Olivan Marquis, co-rush captains. Wilma Wilson Sharp will be with us the weekend after Easter. We are all looking forward to her visit. Some of the things scheduled during her visit are active and pledge meetings, the alumna: chapter is giving a reception for her, a formal initiation followed by a formal dinner. Last night (April 9) Lois Thompson was selected to reign as "Rose of Sigma Tau." Each year Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity presents a combination style and variety show called "Easter on Parade." After the show one of the models is chosen Sigma Tau Rose. Plans are being made for our annual spring formal which is to be May 23. It will be a dinnerdance . On Baccalaureate Sunday we will honor the seniors and our parents with a breakfast. We have eleven graduating this spring. Each one of them will be missed very much. So winds up another school year. MARY K AY REIFF.

THETA THETA College of Education, Boston University, Boston, Massachusetts

For the actives of Theta Theta Chapter, April rst was a very special day. We gave our first spring party for the rushees. It was given in Chestnut Hill at the lovely home of Louise Santosuosso, who made a perfectly ideal hostess! There were thirty-two there altogether, and from the enthusiastic participation in the conversation, games, and refreshments, it was apparent that everyone was really enjoying herself. Games were planned by Kathleen Childs and Flora Edwards; some exciting, others thought-provoking and amusing. Prizes were given which, when opened, revealed the spirit of "April Fool's Day." Delicious refreshments had been planned by Ruth Mayo, Gertrude Yorke, and Gertrude Sherman. The evening was climaxed when Marjorie Glendon played the "Alpha Sigma Alpha Pledge Song," and "Alpha Sigma Alpha Initiaton Song," especially composed by her with words by Gertrude Yorke for our Sorority. We always love these songs as they mean so much to us. Many other melodies were played, and while some danced, others stood around the

piano and sung enthusiastically. The evening was gay and informal, and we enjoyed the rushees so much that we hope many of them will become Alpha Sigs very soon. The rushees and actives were royally entertained by the Alumna: at the home of Mary McAuley in Winchester. She showed us her pictures, in technicolor, of her trip to the west coast, showing scenes of New Mexico, Hollywood, beautiful canyons, and Indian life. Later came scenes of fishing in Gloucester, and then she ended by showing kindergarten actiVIties. It was a perfectly grand party, and we all thank our Alumna: very much! BETTY SYLVESTER.

KAPPA KAPPA Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

These warm spring days, the leaves budding on the trees, flowers, they give us spring fever but they also make us think about how we're all going to get to Chicago in August for Convention. Our new president, Evelyn Roos, is our official delegate, but we hope to have a car or two of Kappa Kaps going along. Besides electing Evie for President, we voted for a grand new bunch of officers; Jeanne Hawley, is Vice-President; Frances Parry, Recording Secretary; Clara Helen Rice, Corresponding Secretary; Marjorie Kendall, Treasurer; Peggy Martin, Editor; Kitty Brill, Registrar, and Jean Baker, Chaplain. Rushing season turned out wonderfully well too. We pledged thirteen girls, the same number as 路 our Kappa Kappa graduates in June. One of our pledges, Doris Fox, is Sophomore Class president, the second girl class president in the history of our University and the first girl to ever play in the University band. Our second rush party was orre of the nicest we have ever had. It was the first time we had not given a dinner dance, because of the ruling passed by our local Panhellenic board that no men were to be allowed at any rush parties. It seems to be a success because we all admitted we got to know the girls much better than we ever had before. The Germantown Cricket Club, a beautiful country club on the outskirts of Philadelphia, was where we held our banquet, which began our second rush party. From there we went in busses to the Germantown Play House, a picturesque little theatre which is a remodeled old barn, where \Ve saw "Is Life Worth Living?" The actors and actresses gave us permission to have a tea after the show in their club house, one of the most artistic old buildings we had ever seen. We won the gold plaque given to the first place winner in the Greek Sing which was held the first day of Greek Week-end. That night at the Greekdance in Mitten Hall each fraternity and sorority had a booth representing some country. Ours was Brazil, looking very pretty with soft green lights, all sorts of foliage, and two chatty parrots amusing the dancers. Saturday night we had an open-house dance

53 when, as usual, all the fraternities a nd sororities h ad open house dances so the Greeks could circulate from place to place to mingle with all their friends on campus. All of the Kappa Kappas felt lost last week w hen our house mother, Mrs. Rita Clarke, was hurried off to the Temple Hospital. She IS much improved now a nd we expect that she will be back with us after Easter vacation to finish the year, but it is with a realization that we will lose someone 路 w ho is a vital part of our sorority, for we have accepted her resignation, beginning this summer, because of her health. There are five Alpha Sigs up for May Queen and m embers of her court. They are Evelyn Wolf, Dottie Bender, Betty Hardy, Sis Mylin , and Kay Lutton. We are hoping to see you all at Convention this summer. CHARLOTTE KRIEBEL.

MU MU Michigan State Normal College, Ypsilanti, Michigan

Mu Mu Chapter is happy to introduce five new Alpha Sigs. On March 2 0, 1941, lone Lee Rogers, Adele Mattewson, Patricia Cleary, Iva Mae and Loretta Woodruff pledged Mu Mu Chapter of Alpha Sigma Alpha. Monday night, April 7, 1941, the pledges gave us a party. Guests other than active members included our adviser, Mrs. Harpste r a nd Mrs . Barss, patroness. The evening was spent in playing pinochle. Refreshments con sisting of a lovely chocolate cake (made by a pledge) and coffee brought the evening to a close and sent us on our way happy. Initiation is going to be April 26, 1941, at Charles McKenny H all . More of the Delta Phi Alumna: girls from D etroit are going to be initi ated at the same time. Following initiation we are having a tea for new members and alumna: .

NU NU Drexel Institute of Technology, Philade1phia, Pennsy]vania

March and April somehow always prove busy month s fo r us Nu Nu girl s, what with final examinations, vacations, new terms and such. But somehow we managed to find time to welcome six of our new pledges into our active chapter. And we are mighty proud to have them . Then just by way of really welcoming our new girls, acti ves and pledges adjourned, immediately following the ceremony, to Stauffer's for a delightful dinner, w hich "Vi" Albright arranged. Fifty of us, including our "Mommy " Macintyre, Nu Nu's sponsor, and Miss Maxfield, chapter adviser, attired in fo rmal govv ns, spent a pleasant evening listening to the inspiring talks on the four "C's"-character, charm , calibre, and culture-given by Dot Hutton, Poily Steinberg, Miss Maxfield and Jan e Pryse respecti vely .

Then a (ew weeks hence out at Drexel Lodge, fifteen miles from the college building, we Alpha Sigs had an informal party. And it certainly did fulfill its purpose of relieving the pressure of oncoming exams. Under Betty Ligget's chai rmanship, the punch, cookies, dancing and informal games combined to fo rm an evening of real fun. Since we have seen how lovely and tanned some of the girls are, after spendi ng a week in Miami, we just can't resist telling you about it. Yes "Pres" Dottie Hutton, Ja nie Pryse, Secretary Nancy Walker, a nd Treasurer Eleanor Longacre all packed down to Florida, in Janie's car, during our very welcome spring vacation the last week in March. After they arrived, they met Loi s Meadowcroft, who had gone down by train . Their stories of their escapades have been the source of much of our delight this past week, and their tans a source of envy. The topic closest to the hearts of all of us these days is convention. The Edgewater Beach Hotel certainly sounds inviting. We're all so eager to go, that we've really been planning ways of raising money at every chance. Our pledges have sold candy, a nd have chanced off Nylons and a fivepound Easter egg. And Betty Smith, convention fund chairma n, is planning a box lunch picnic, at which the girls auction off box lunches which they have packed. Betty also has plans fo r a lemon squeeze. If all our efforts prove fruitful, you can expect to see a lot of us out in C hicago in August . W e're certainl y looking forwa rd to seeing all of you.

On April r8 the pledges are entertaining the actives by taking us to see the "Blackguard," a melodrama. April 27 is the date for the W. P. P. A. Tea which Xi Xi is sponsoring. Invitations are being sent to all sororities on campus belonging to W. P. P. A. We are hoping to establish a feeling of GoodWill among all non-social sororities. Last year Xi Xi established a Scholarship Fund and we hope to present an equal amount again this year. So, on May 3 we are giving a benefit dance to be held at the home of one of our members, Canfield Home, Beverley Hills; bids $r.oo. We anticipate a great success. Also to help boost our Scholarship Fund we are going to raffle ofl a $5 Bullock's Merchandise Order, the drawing for which will be held May 19. Last year we made $25 on a raffle and hope to repeat it this year. Last, but by no means least, our Spring Formal is to be held May 23. It is not definitely decided where it will be, but probably at the Cocoanut Grove or the Biltmore Bowl. After that comes final examinations; then it won't be so long until National Convention. Every Xi Xi member would like to attend and we are all contemplating eagerly any possible chance. JANE JACKSON.

PI PI Buffalo State Teachers College, Buffalo, New York

Who was it that said, "Parting is such sweet sorrow"? At any rate, I think he was mistaken. I can't seem to find anything sweet about my sorrow in saying good-bye to the readers of THE PHOENIX and also good-bye to Pi Pi Chapter as an active member. Of course, one thing is certain, I will never, never forget my associations with Alpha Sigma Alpha . Rush parties, meetings, dances, conventions, gals and pals, sorority house sentiments, service, and best of all associations with hundreds of young women throughout this big country of ours. But this is supposed to be a news letter and not a "blues" letter, so if I can possibly tell you all of the things we've been doing, I will. First of all, fathers turned out en tout for our Father's Day Banquet. This banquet was initiated two years ago-now, it has become the outstanding event of our year of activities. N~xt we ~ad election of officers for the coming year, mstallation of the same, and initiation of some of our pledges who were unable to attend the last initiation. I believe a welcome is in order for Marge Bennett, and Olga Parenti. . Now, .to top everything we start our Spring Rush With an mformal Pirate Party in the Rod and Gun Club down on the waterfront. It really is a "riot"

to see us reinstating the life of Long John Silver, and Captain Kidd, even let Robinson Crusoe and his man Friday in on Thursdays! And that isn't allhave you ever made a peg-leg? Pretty soon, we will have our mothers downthen, a brides' party-and formal rush-and a joint get-together with one of the fraternities - spring house-party and farewell to the grandest year of my college life! Next year I shall be teaching on Long Islandand last Thursday night Evelyn Bell, our beloved National President told me that there is a gran1:1 New York City alumn:e chapter. Now, may I introduce our new chapter editor, charming, full of humor, and a real Alpha Sig, Esther Hoag. Good-bye and good luck, RAMONA BARNES.

RHO RHO Marshall College, Huntington, West Virginia

Since the last issue of THE PHOENIX, we have been very busy planning for the initiation and pledging services, and for the installation of our new officers. Four girls became members of Alpha Sigma Alpha during the last week of February, and several weeks later, four girls were pledged to our sorority. On March 12, our new officers were honored at a St. Patrick's Day tea, given at the home of our faculty adviser, Mrs. John White. Dainty sandwiches and delicious tea were enjoyed by all sorority officers and house mothers of the various sororities and fraternities on the campus. In the near future, the actives and pledges will attend church together. This is -to be preceded by breakfast in a downtown hotel. Our alumn:e sisters will be guests at a buffet supper to be given at our first meeting in May. The most important event on Marshall's social calendar is our spring formal, which will take place May 9th at the Shawkey Student Union Building on the C<\mpus. The formal will be a program dance, and already, most every girl has her program filled with dances. We are very much enthused over the National Convention and wish it were possible for every member of Rho Rho Chapter to attend. BETTY ALM .

SIGMA SIGMA Western State College, Gunnison, Colorado

. We .are very busy making plans for our actiVIties which are to be. held during spring quarter. There IS so much gomg on and to top things ofl we have to attend classes on Saturday, some of the students even have classes at night. ~velyn Bartlett, our sponsor, and Christena Sweitzer, our president, are giving a luncheon for

ss the members of the chapter. It is to be held at the Bartlett Hennery. Plans are taking on form for our spring formal , which is to be held on April 25th. I am sure it will be a huge success as it has always been in the past. We have been practicing for sometime on our songs to be sung at the annual intramural sing. We plan to sing "The Rosary" and "The Alpha Sigma Alpha Sweetheart Song." Last month we all had a wonderful time at our pledge dance. The pledges had the brilliant idea of carrying the dance out in the theme of a lion and lamb-you know March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb or visa versa. This gave the boys and girls their choice of either wearing white summery things or dark woolen things. I am afraid it came in like a lamb, for the lion is certainly blowing his breath today. Some of us attempted to play some tennis, but had to give it up. Others, I can see from my window, are playing golf. Miriam Lancaster, a member of the Beta Beta Chapter at Greeley, who is now going to school at Denver Univ'ersity, has been here doing exchange library work. We only wish that she could stay with us longer. Some of the girls met her at the Regional Convention in D enver last year. CELIA CALHOU N .

TAU TAU Fort Hays Kansas State College, Hays, Kansas

Mrs. Sharp's visit to Tau Tau, March 19 through 21, was a most important event in the life of our chapter this year. We enjoyed every minute of her stay with us-how could we otherwise, she is so charming and sweet. And also so very capable. On the day of Mrs. Sharp's arrival, Miss Elizabeth Agnew, the Dean of Women on our campus and a former adviser of Tau Tau, entertained Mrs. Sharp and the advisers of the other sororities . at luncheon. Following this Mrs. Sharp was busy With conferences and a Panhellenic meeting. At this meeting she gave a short talk. The girls from the different sororities thought she was wonderful. On Thursday Panhellenic entertained with a tea in her honor. She also had conferences with Dean Wooster and President Rarick of the college. That evening we had initiation for Miss Eleanor Murray who is our new chapter adviser. Friday n~on the pledges had lunch with Mrs. Sharp after which there were more conferences. Friday evening we had a formal dinner at the Lames Hotel honoring Mrs . Sharp. This was followed by an alumna: meeting. Mrs. Sharp's visit seemed to pass too quickly but we realize that she is a very busy person who has much to do. Miss Murray, our new adviser, is one of the librarians in the library on our campus. All of us like her so much and she "belongs" very well in the life of our chapter. Being a sorority member is

not new to her as she belonged to Kappa Alpha Theta while a student at Ka nsas U niversity. An alumna: chapter of A . S. A . has been organized at Great Bend, Kansas, it being composed mostly of former T au Tau gi rls. E lea nor Stroble, who was in the active chapter last yea r, is secretary of the organi zation. Saturday, April 5, was the date of the Panhell enic formal. The Alphas were in charge of the floor show. Tau Tau has added three girls to add to its membership list. They were initiated Sunday, April 6. These girls were pledged in F ebruary. W e have only two pledges now and they hope to be initiated after Easter. During the week of April 1-5 we had a "Curtesy Week" for our pledges. It was really a week of special duties. Each pledge had to see every active every day and obtain their signatures, after doing the duties assigned to her. They visited the crippled children's clinic at a hospital in town, were required to look their best subject to active inspection, and had various little courtesies to perform during this week. On May 9 all of the Greek orga nizations on our campus will take part in a Sorority and Fraternity Sing to be held in the evening. Each organi zation will sing two of its songs. Thi s will be followed by a formal dance to which only Greeks will be admitted. One of Tau Tau's members is "up in the air" so to speak. Lucile Parsons has enrolled in a flying course thi s semester. Lucy loves it. She fairly bubbles over with enthusiasm whenever she talks about it. M ARY ALICE WIESN ER.

PHI PHI Northwest Missouri State Teachers College, Maryville, Missouri

Phi Phi Chapter of Alpha Sigma Alpha held its Spring Tea at the home of Mrs. F. M. Townsen~. Included in the receiving line were the Panhellemc sponsor, patronesses and sorority sponsor and presidents. The house was very beauti fully decorated with Easter lilies and the colors of green and yellow wer~ carried out by the use of cakes and mints. A harp, played by Ma ry Ann Smith, furnished a lovely musical background for the tea. The tea lasted from 2:30 to 6:30 p. m. a nd approximately three hundred guests were received. Our chapter was honored with a talk by Mr. Nel St. Lamkin, president of our college, and the subject of the talk, "Place of Sororities ~n. t~e Ca.~足 pus." H e spoke very highly of the soront1es participation in the activities of the college. After the president's speech a light lunch was served. . Another activity throroughly enjoyed by the g1rls of Phi Phi Chapter was a bridge party following a short business meeting . Cokes and sandwiches were served. J EAN ZI M M E RMAN .


s6 CHI CHI Ball State Teachers College, Muncie, Indiana

The Hawaiian D ance, our annual formal dance, is over, leaving us with a satisfied feeling of having given one of the loveliest dances.~拢_ the year. . So our minds are turning to other actiVJUes, and Spnng Term certainly overflows with them. There was the installation of officers fo r the coming year in a lovely service just a week ago. T~en there was the rush party fo r fourteen charmmg g1rls in the Burris Recreation Hall last week. Soon we shall be planning toward special Mothers' Day activities and Senior dinner. Our regular meetings have been most interesting as well as entertaining. Each time, in addition to our regular business meeting, a group of app~inted girls present a clever miniature program, addmg a great deal to our regular routine. Perhaps you would enjoy this little innovation, too. This is the last time we will meet for a while, isn't it? We will be looking for you at Convention this summer. EuzABETH W oLFE.

PSI PSI Louisiana State Normal College, Natchitoches, Louisiana

The big event of the year-the election of the chapter officers-has taken place and the newly elected officials have been installed. Our personable president of the past year, Sidney Gremillion, was reelected unanimously" to the office which she has so effici ently filled, with Ava Louise Lester to serve as vice-president. The secretary is Cecil Mae Callouette, the treasurer is Helen Clay, her assistant is Adel ine MacDade, the chaplain, Ruby Jones, registrar, Judith Tomlinson, assistant registrar, lone Sutton, editor, Ri vers Rhodes, Panhellenic representative, Viol a Caraway. We went into disguise on Monday, April 7, in order to present a really southern "nigger weddin' " for Stunt Night. We were rather proud of ourselves fo r winning third place, and even if we hadn't won anything, we had loads of fun dressing up. Some of the girls looked like the real Me oy! No one recogni zed sweet, demure Mary Allen Caraway as the crippled old grandpappy or di gnified Frances Thomas as the old darky preacher. Tuesday night, April 15th, we plan to pledge the gracious Mrs. G race Himel and two talented little freshmen. One has a good singing voice a nd the other plays the piano beautifully. A small , informal party will be held afterwards. Even though we had to go through the grind of 路 mid-semester exams, plans are already underwa y for our mother-daughter banquet to be held May 9th. Incidentally, the mention of mid-semester reminds us of the all-inportant fact that Alpha Sigs stood first in grades among the sororities on the Hill for the fall semester. We've always been noted fo r our

pretty girls and it seems that now we h~ve found the formula for combining beauty and brams. All that any of us can talk about these days is Conventions! Quite a few of the Psi Psi girls are definitely going, and even more are planning to go, so we hope to see you all in Chicago this summer. We feel that we know most of you anyway, after reading about your various activities and good times as you report them to THE PHOENIX. RIVERS RHODES.

BETA DELTA State Teachers College, Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

An Alpha Sig's Di:;uy Dear Diary: Friday. Oh!!! What a fine time, I did have this St. Valentine's Day. Beta Deltas gave their first dance and it was really grand. The music was just simply wonderful. I waltzed - fox-trotted - jittered, and altogether, I almost danced holes through my slippers. The gymnasium looked so pretty. Hearts of different sizes were waving all around the room. There was a huge heart at one end of the gym through which the Alpha Sig's marched during their lead out. Big red and white balloons were floating from the ceiling casting shadows on the dancers below. Special guests of Beta Delta besides faculty chaperons were representatives from other sororities on the campus. As we were leaving, I could hear the guests saying, "This was the best dance of the year." I thought so too. Saturday. You know, we've been having a sorority basketball tournament. Guess who won it??? We did . .. Beta Deltas!!! I guess this proves that Alpha Sigma girls can be good athletes as well as good students. Monday. The Alpha Sigma installation of officers for 194142 was certainly inspiring and impressive. I think the Beta Deltas made very wise selections in their choice for officers. They chose: Statia McNeese, president; Mable Turman, vice-president; Kathryn Robbins, secretary; Evelyn McNeese, treasurer; Elizabeth Langdon, collegiate representative; Evelyn Hocutt, registrar ; Gloria Coleman, chaplain; Virginia Pickel, editor. Well, here's hoping fo r a successful year. Tuesday. Do you know what Statia McNeese told me today? A cup is going to be given to the sorority having the highest scholarship during the year. The Alpha Sig's are leading'!! In fact, we are pretty sure we are goi ng to win. Oh, but we will be so happy if we do.

57 Thursday. Just think, we are going to give a play. The name of which is "Wh at Are You Going to Wear?" We hope this will win the play tournament, in which every sorority is going to participate. The best one will be given a cup. Under the direction of Marcelle Davis, I'm sure our play will be chosen. Friday. The chaplain of Beta Delta, Clarice Ice, is the only all A student on the campus. We are so proud of her. As she is a senior, we are trul y going to miss her next year. Saturday. Statia McNeese was really happy tonight. She was elected to go to the Alpha Sigma Alpha Convention as a delegate from Beta Delta. Beta Delta Chapter wishes all the delegates to the Convention a grand time.

"Hats off" to Skippy Warden, our retmng President. We wish her and the rest of our grad uates the most success in th{"ir new world of independence.

Three of our pledges were among those tapped by Blue Key and Lambda Omega as honor freshmen students and eleven Alpha Sigs were among the upperclassmen honor students tapped by the faculty. We are proud of these and particularly of our four girls who received bids to Vermilion Honor Society, an honor organization of junior and senior girls. They are Phyllis Dixon, Dorothy Wild, Noella Orgeron, and Evelyn Songe. All girls on our campus were posture-conscious as the annual Girls' Posture contest drew near. Our

own Nevelyn Simon was one of the five winners of the contest. By the way, Nevelyn is our candidate for treasurer of the sophomore class. In the intramural basketball tournament the Alpha Sigma team, of which Dot Wild was captain, played in the finals with Sigma Sigma Sigma and lost in a close match, 10-9. An honorary Home Economics sorority, Sigma Theta, has been formed on the Southwestern campus. Alpha Sigmas were elected to four of the five offices. Barbara Wild is president, Marguerite Hail, vicepresident, Catherine Hudson, treasurer, and Mildred Songe, reporter. EvELYN TouPs.

What Other Greeks Are Doing High amid the clouds, fifteen collegiate members of Theta Xi chapter of Delta Delta Delta entertained thirteen rushees at an aerial tea party, the first of its kind, on the afternoon of September 5路 Taking off from the Union Air Line Terminal in Burbank in an American Airlines Douglas Skysleeper, the party cruised over Los Angeles and down the coast of California to Laguna Beach. Sandwiches, cake, and tea were served during the trip. On board were two pilots, a stewardess, and an American Airlines representative who answered questions and showed the air enthusiasts the intricate instruments and mechanisms in the cockpit. Many of the girls took to the air for the first time on this trip, and for many it was the first experience in a large plane. Throughout the jaunt there were squeals of delight as the University of Southern California with its Tri Delta house, downtown buildings, and other familiar landmarks were sighted. Through the courtesy of the airline, every Tri Delta and rushee on the trip received a handy rubberized zipper bag, useful not only for air travel but fo r the beach and sports as well. Students and townspeople are still talking about the affair. For Theta Xi chapter it was not so much a novelty as a forward step, typical of those taken by the enti re organization. It is an earnest desire of the chapter to make one of these parties an annual event.-The T Tident of Tri Delta.

Apparently it's becoming tradition to pledge Alpha Delta Pi at Alabama to keep the Diamond in the family! Last spring the A delphean published a picture of five sets of sisters in the chapter, all of whom were in school at the same time. Again this same chapter has five sets of sisters, only five of whom were in school last year. The Zonta Scholarship for graduate study in engineering has been awarded fo r the first time. This award went to Rose Elizabeth Lunn, Sigma Kappa, who is doing work toward her doctor's degree in aeronautical engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Zonta is an international organization for executive women .-Banta's Gt'eek Exchange. Even a Pulitzer prize winner has to start somewhere, and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, authoress, got her start at the University of Wisconsin as a theme writer and contributor to a campus literary magazine. In October she returned to the University of Wisconsin campus and was surprised and disappointed to find that the University was now without a creative magazine of its own. So it was that Mrs. Rawlings did not have to be asked twice to help "christen" the Daily Cardinal's new Sunday magazine section, appea ring for the first time on October 13. Mrs . Rawlings, author of The Yearling, is a member of K A 庐.-Banta's Greek Exchange.
